Protect Yourself with Multi-Factor Authentication

While the Stetson Information Technology department is preparing to roll out multi-factor authentication for Stetson University, the importance of this enhanced cybersecurity feature keeps popping up in the news.

Due to the prevalence of password reuse, hackers are now targeting retirement accounts. A recent article in USA Today (story here) told the story of a woman who had $72,000 missing from her retirement account due to hackers. If multi-factor authentication were set up, the hackers would have likely not gained access.

As we implement multi-factor authentication here at Stetson, please protect yourself by reviewing and enabling this security feature on all of your accounts, such as banks, retirement accounts, email accounts and Social Security.

We will host our next Multi-Factor Authentication demo and training session on Jan. 29, 2-3 p.m. in Room 126 in the LBC. Please RSVP by sending an email to
