Security Enhancements

Security remains a significant and important initiative to our campus and constituents that we support. To assist in strengthening our efforts in this space a new information security analyst has recently been added to the staff.

As of today, the University is invited to enroll in Duo Security, our new two-factor authentication tool. We will be making this tool mandatory on December 19, 2018, so everyone is encouraged to enroll now to avoid needing to do it in the future.

More information about why we moved to Duo, how it combats security challenges, and how to get enrolled can be found at our Duo FAQ.
