Registered visitors and volunteers
Do you use OHSU Web-mail (www.ohsu.edu/mail)? If so...
Effective March 1, 2018 two-step authentication will be required when logging in to mail.ohsu.edu from outside the OHSU network — for example, while connected to your home network or a public Wi-Fi network such as OHSU-Guest, Eduroam or the ones available from popular places like coffee shops, hotels or airports.
This extra layer of security is called two-step, or multi-factor, authentication. You might already be familiar with the concept — it’s used by Google, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Instagram, Amazon and many banks, but you typically have to enable it yourself. It’s also required by many leading educational institutions, including Duke, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Boston University, Princeton and Yale.
By adding two-step authentication to Outlook Web Access, remote attackers won’t be able to log in as you — even if they somehow obtained your OHSU username and password.
What you need to do:
Protect your login — enroll in Duo before Thursday, March 1. Just follow the step-by-step instructions, which include an overview video.
Outlook Web Access (www.ohsu.edu/mail) is the first of several systems to which two-step authentication will apply. Eventually, two-step authentication will be required for remote access to additional OHSU systems, such as Citrix and Oracle. More information will be provided as it becomes available in the coming months.
Integrity Booster required by Feb. 28
Along with all OHSU employees and students, all OHSU visitors and volunteers are required to complete the 2018 Integrity Booster course by Feb. 28. This annual training helps OHSU meet legally mandated education requirements as well as other institutional obligations. Additionally, each year’s booster provides you and your staff the means and resources to maintain OHSU’s culture of ethics and integrity.
