You can either do something you know like…a pin or password or something that you have like…a mobile phone or something that you are like a fingerprint.…For example, to log into your Microsoft account,…it could require your password step one and then…a security code, step two.…The security code can be sent to you by email, SMS,…phone call, or you can use an authenticator app…on your mobile device.…Likewise, an attacker would need to have a user's actual…phone and pin number or biometric information to get…into your Microsoft account.…
Using the tools that come with a standard Windows build, James Gonzalez shows how to configure data storage (on client devices and on OneDrive), secure data with good authentication practices, encrypt data with EFS and BitLocker, and manage data access to shared folders, printers, and hard drives.
