Beginning on Tuesday, February 1st, 2022, Information Technology (IT) will enable Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for access to the Student Information System (SIS). In the rapidly changing cybersecurity landscape, MFA remains one of the best protections against bad actors gaining control of accounts and access to important University data. Here are some things to keep in mind when considering the upcoming change:
- Only those currently enrolled in Duo MFA (employees, student employees, and those students who have self-enrolled) will be affected.
- As with other systems protected by Duo MFA, you will be allowed to check a box to be remembered for a certain period of time. On properly configured devices, this limits the number of MFA prompts one must work through each day.
- Duo MFA is already in place in front of the University's Oracle eBusiness Suite (eBiz), Google Workspace suite of tools, and other important University systems.
As always, if you need help with Duo MFA or have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to your IT support by visiting Service Hub and opening a support ticket, or calling the IT Service Desk at (319) 273-5555.
