Oxy's implementing of Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for all faculty and staff members.

Why is MFA from Microsoft Important?

Given the rise in cyberattacks targeting sensitive data, enhancing our system's security is imperative. The integration of MFA from Microsoft provides an additional security layer to your accounts, requiring a second step of verification, which maintains the security of your account even if your password is compromised. Real-time alerts for any unauthorized login attempts are also generated.
