Two Factor Authentication
Two Factor Authentication is an extra layer of security that is also known multi-factor authentication. This authentication requires a username and password but also an additional fob that is assigned just to a single user. Information Technology will provide users with two factor fobs for the Human Resources system or the Shared Financial System as required for their job duties. Information Technology also uses Duo, a phone application, as a MFA tool.
Contact the Information Technology Help Desk at 920-424-3020 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a fob.
