The reality is that passwords just aren’t enough anymore. As a society we’ve had to find new ways to ensure highly sensitive and confidential information remain safe and secure.
Your security and privacy are of the utmost importance to us and we take the protection of your sensitive data very seriously.
We’ve recently rolled out Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for all users of the eBrief Ready platform. 2FA allows us to verify that the person trying to gain access to the account is who they say they are. Even if your password falls into the hands of someone other than yourself, the chances of them also having your second-factor information are extremely unlikely.
How it works
This extra level of protection is just a simple and speedy additional step when logging in to your account. From now onwards, existing users logging into their account can set up 2FA with just a couple of clicks, and it will always be given as a recommended option for any new user joining the platform.
We’ve provided two methods of enabling 2FA – via an App or by SMS. Both options provide the user with a one-time passcode to enter to gain access to their account.
