SMS as a Cryptocoin attack vector

This presentation will show how malicious actors are actively taking advantage of the use of SMS as second authentication factor to prove identity. These vulnerabilities enable malicious actors to obtain SMS messages then proceed to reset and take over all users accounts starting with email
accounts with access to financial, social media and corporate accounts.

SMS should be discarded as a second form of authentication, this presentation will also
provide alternative authentication methods to compensate SMS deprecation.
