A great analogy: strong authentication is like Penicillin for your network security

To qoute:
"Many, but not all, security problems will be solved if we can get away from reusable passwords. Here's a simple example: imagine if ATM machines didn't require an ATM card to dispense cash. Anyone who knew your account name and PIN could walk up, type them in, and empty your account. There is still ATM fraud today - cards can be counterfeited, PINs stolen or guessed, etc - but imagine the level of problems we would have if physical possession of the ATM card was part of ATM security."

I have often used the ATM analogy when explaining to non-IT people what WiKID does, but I have never used it this way. More impactful.
