Cybersecurity Awareness Month Wrap-Up

Throughout October, ITS engaged in activities consistent with the national campaign’s overarching theme of individual and organizational responsibility.  We announced updated and new IT Security policies, shared first with you and then more broadly via the UConn newsletter.  We also pushed content about security best practices through messaging, social media, and campus signage.  For example, two factor authentication (2FA) is a security best practice that better protects access to private and confidential information.  ITS adopted this approach for Single Sign On (SSO) NetID authentication, with 100% of staff fully Duo 2FA enabled by the end of October.  We will begin reaching out to key offices to schedule similar transitions, but you can personally protect your information now by visiting the Duo portal on and updating your settings.  Information and assistance is available on the Knowledge Base.
