Deloitte and the need for 2FA on Admin accounts

(0 comments)

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited has 263,000 employees.  That's an astounding number of people, computers, networks, access points etc, etc.  Very hard to keep attackers out of such a vast network with so many needs and uses.  It would cost a lot of money to provide 2FA for all those users.  It would take a lot of effort to monitor the SIEM events for all those users.

However, if they are typical of organizations their size, they probably have a ratio of 1:50 IT to employees (maybe that's off big time, but you will get the drift).  That means that they have about 5,260 IT staff.  Let's call it 5,000 admins - really most IT workers aren't admins, so these numbers are high.  That would cost $60,000 per year to add WiKID 2FA to those accounts.  Now, think about how much easier the log management, SIEM events, etc etc will be versus 263,000 employees.  

I am not saying you can forget about everyone else, but preventing attackers from escalating is cheaper and easier than preventing infiltration.

Please, please use 2FA for admin accounts.
