Oxy's implementing of Google and Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for all faculty and staff members.
Why is MFA from Google and Microsoft Important?
Given the rise in cyberattacks targeting sensitive data, enhancing our system's security is imperative. The integration of MFA from Google and 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.
Enrollment in the MFA program is a straightforward process, estimated to take less than ten minutes. You have several options for MFA delivery, including:
- Text messages to a mobile phone
- Voice calls to a mobile, office, or landline phone
- Authenticator app on a smartphone or tablet
- ITS-issued hardware security key
To begin the enrollment process, follow the instructions available in our enrollment guides. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete both enrollments.
