Too Long; Didn't Read

Hackers responsible for last week’s attack on Twitter hacked at least 103 accounts and downloaded personal data of at least 8 accounts. Enterprises must implement biometric multi-factor authentication to ensure that only the right users have access to the right systems at all times. Unlike passwords, biometrics can’t be easily stolen, faked, or phished, or forgotten. Without passwords, there is nothing to steal, lose or remember, and without passwords there is no data to steal.
