Less than three weeks until MFA is required to access your Microsoft 365 account – get set up and secure by Monday 8 November
The risk to our university is very real and not going away. To reduce the risk of cyber and phishing attacks and to help protect the university network and data, Multi-Factor Authentication will be required.
By Monday 8 November 2021, staff and associates need to set up MFA to secure their Microsoft 365 account. It is really important you act now to prevent any disruption.
To help with setting up MFA and getting secure, we have pop-up Smart Bars across our campuses where you can ask questions in-person. You can also ask questions on the Virtual Smart Bar or at one of the virtual question and answer sessions.
Please check the MFA help and support page for all the details.
Setting up MFA
To set up MFA and secure your account please following these steps:
After you submit your Form, you may need to approve authentication a few times for each app and device that you use but after that, you won’t be prompted for a further 90 days as long as you use the same device and browser.
However, if you are using a university managed Windows 10 device, your experience should be even better, as the device shouldn’t prompt for authentication after initial set up, as long as your device is compliant (it has up-to-date security policies).
Visit the Securing 365 SharePoint site for further guidance and FAQs.
Thank you for your support.
