We are enchancing our systems to protect your personal data!
UMass Medical School is implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information and University data. This is an all campus intitiave across all the campuses under the UMass flagship. The goal of MFA implementation is to protect the University against data breaches by ensuring only legitimate users and appropriate devices have access to sensitive data and applications - anytime, anywhere.
In its simplest form, MFA uses two of three authentication methods to verify your identity:
- Something you know (like your password)
- Something you have (like your mobile phone)
- Something you are (like a fingerprint)
MFA coming soon to HR Direct!
The first application that will be using MFA is HR Direct, the self-service human resources application that is available to all current UMass Medical School employees. This project is being implemented by UITS for all UMass Campuses. Please check out thier FAQ page for additional information.
More details will be provided as we get closer to implementation for UMMS MFA!
