PROTECT IT: Keep personal information secure
As part of our ongoing effort to enhance cybersecurity at UBC, we will be introducing multi-factor authentication (MFA) across the university within the next year. By adding MFA to frequently used university applications, we will strengthen access security by requiring two or more methods to verify a user’s identity. We are amongst the first universities in Canada to introduce multifactor authentication broadly into our applications, joining other organizations including Facebook, Harvard, and MIT.
We are currently working with Duo Security to create an experience that is as seamless and simple as possible. The first phase of the project will include multi-factor authentication for:
- Several high-traffic sites and applications used by UBC IT employees
- UBC IT VPN Pool
* CWL username/password required
