SB192b Does not disable MFA on Microsoft 365

Disabling MFA on Microsoft 365 increases the risk of an unauthorised person gaining access to your account if they know your password.

Why is it important?

Multi-factor authentication increases account security from 50% to 99%. Disabling multi-factor authentication cuts security in half, significantly increasing the ease with which threat actors can breach accounts. This would give cybercriminals access to all information contained within your Microsoft 365 account.
