At noon on March 13, 2017, PeopleSoft, the university’s student information system, will join a growing list of OHIO online services that feature a login protection called multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication turns your login into a two-step process:
This confirmation step helps protect the university from data loss and you from identity theft should you fall victim to a phishing scam, because a scammer would need both your password and your phone to access your account.
On Mar. 13, any employee who has access to at least one PeopleSoft administrative screen or feature will need to use multi-factor authentication when logging into https://sis.ohio.edu. Students who only need to access their Student Center - https://sis.ohio.edu/student - are exempt from this requirement.
Other OHIO online services that feature multi-factor authentication currently include My Personal Information and e-Business.
If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
