Update on two-step login

(4 May 2017)

As you will have read in eNews last month, there will be a new two-step login process for all staff launched in the summer. 

Ahead of this change, a number of free events will be taking place across the University to highlight the risks we face and how to work more safely. You will hear about the University’s Cyber Security Programme and the changes being made to how we log in to some services, to keep our key systems secure from cyber criminals. 

Local experts from the Greater Manchester Police Cyber Crime Team and from TITAN, the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit, as well as Professor Daniel Dresner, from the School of Computer Science, will also be sharing their insights into the underworld of cybercrime, it’s victims, and first hand advice on staying safe. 

Event dates:

  • 16 May and 4 July - featuring Dr Daniel Dresner (University of Manchester)
  • 23 May, 14 June, 20 June and 26 June - featuring Paul Taylor (Greater Manchester Police)
  • 5 June - featuring Helen Williams (TITAN) 

All events are being held across lunchtimes at various venues around the campus.
