Passwords and a user name are the most security many web sites require to access the information locked in their databases. However, banks and others are getting smarter and realize that more than simple passwords might be needed to protect some data.
The Associated Press reports Bank of America Corp. is rolling out a new security system aimed at thwarting efforts by online crooks to access its customers’ accounts.
Passwords will no longer be enough.
With SiteKey, bank customers pick three challenge questions — things only the customer would know, such as the year and model of the customer’s first car — and provide them with the traditional password to log on.
What about your business?
Have you consider, if you should implement a more stringent solution for accessing secure parts of your web site?
