1.0 What is multi-factor authentication (MFA)?
MFA is an industry standard for confirming a user's claimed identity by using something they know, i.e. a password, and a second factor incorporating either something they have, e.g. a mobile device, or something inherently unique to that individual, e.g. a fingerprint. An MFA event occurs when a user logs into SG applications or sites.
