[ARIN-consult] increasing 2FA take-up

Agreed. 2FA should be required when the account protects important assets.

2FA should be optional but available for those who wish to further secure
their account for less important assets.

This begs the question though -- could opening a ticket with ARIN and
responding to it cause resource control to change? If so, tickets should
also be protected.

Always consider your threat matrix -- if someone could log into the ARIN
Ticketing System and pretend to be you, could that have huge negative
impacts on assignments and resources? If so, then 2FA should be mandatory
there as well.
