The talk began with Security Engineer Paul Guder reviewing helpful tips for generating and managing passwords. Next, Lead Security Engineer Chris Clausen shared the various tools they use to conduct vulnerability scanning. Then, Sr. Security Engineer Kay Avila reviewed DUO, the two-factor authenticator used for protecting NCSA assets.
