ETS is pleased to host the Division of IT (DIT) for an event to help answer your questions around multi-factor authentication (MFA). They will also be available to assist with registration of your token or MFA/Duo app on a personal or work device. You must bring your device and/or token with you, as well as your University ID, if you wish to have assistance with registration. Please RSVP if you plan to attend during any part of the two-hour window. This is a drop-in event, so you only need to stay as long as is necessary for your needs.
MFA is being implemented for a broad audience of COE faculty, instructors, and some staff, to aid in data security. The initiative to move to MFA for many apps behind CAS login for a select set of users was announced last month, and the deadline for those users to have a method of additional authentication (in addition to your username and password) is December 4, 2017. You should have received an email directly from DIT if you will be impacted, but if you aren’t sure, and especially if you are a faculty member here in the COE who deals with student data (including grades), you can confirm if you are required to complete this extra step by contacting the DIT helpdesk at 301-405-1500.
For those who cannot make it for the COE event, there is also a DIT event in McKeldin on 11/10/17. Both should cover similar material.

Those preferring to use a token over the app should contact their academic department to see if they need to obtain it themselves.
