Action required by all staff - changing how we login from next Tuesday
(16 November 2017)
On Tuesday 21 November 2017, the way all staff and postgraduate research students login each day will change, to introduce an extra layer of IT security using ‘2-factor authentication’ (whether on or off campus).
You will need to use our new 2-factor authentication service, which is being provided by a company called Duo, to login to a new virtual private network (VPN) called GlobalProtect. All staff and postgraduate research students will need to register with Duo before Tuesday, 21 November 2017.
If you do not register and get set up ahead of the change, from Tuesday 21 November you will still be able to log in to your computer but your desktop email will not work (email through mobile and tablet devices will be unaffected).
