How Phone Numbers Became a Dangerous Identification Device
Adv. Anat Even-Chen, our regulatory consulting partner, was interviewed by TheMarker on the growing reliance on phone numbers as a means of identity verification, a phenomenon that raises the risks associated with information security and privacy.
"In order to give access to certain sensitivity actions, a person is required to verify that he is the one who should have access, by three factors," explains Anat, "something you know (password for example), something you have (like a telephone), and something that is part of you (biometric finger identity, for example). Israeli financial entities will not invest in this sector without pressure from the regulator—pressure that currently does not exist. "
