In the news recently we’ve been hearing about the SolarWinds hack. Believed to have been perpetrated by Russian hackers, we now know that it’s affecting tech companies, hospital systems, and United States federal agencies, as well as other government agencies around the world. While it has been confirmed that some customers have been directly affected, the attacks have been aimed at primarily supply chain organizations – that means they are attacking the sites that you log into for business and finance.
With these advanced attack tactics out there, it is more critical than ever that we find ways to protect ourselves in the digital world. One of the best ways to do that is by enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).
We here at CLARK began recommending 2FA to our clients long before this Covid-19 situation started. While data is still being compiled on the number of cyberattacks for this year, at this point we know that there were more attacks in the first half of 2020 than for the entirety of 2019.
When you stop and think about the sheer volume of cyberattacks, it becomes apparent that each of us must take steps to reduce our chances of becoming a victim. One of the best tools available to us right now is still 2FA. While I go into using 2FA more in this video blog, I wanted to highlight some aspects of it for you here.
As I mentioned earlier, we began recommending 2FA long before this whole pandemic started, we have plenty of experience configuring it and showing our clients how to use it. If you are not currently using 2FA in your small business or for your personal financial accounts, I would strongly recommend you start using it now.

I left big business to start Clark Computer Services in 2003; not because I had a grand vision, but because I had three young children who needed their Dad around. Knowing I had to replace my salary, I went door-to-door visiting small businesses to introduce myself and ask if they needed IT support. I heard story after story from business owners and office managers about IT companies not returning calls and emails, grumpy technicians showing up late or not at all, and systems being down for days, weeks, and in some cases…months. I realized quickly that there was a clear and pressing need for reliable, honest, and professional IT support completed pleasantly and on time.
