On Thursday evening, Dec. 19, the I.T. department will perform updates to the sign-on page for email (email.stetson.edu) to improve the login experience.

The changes will make the page look similar to the my.stetson.edu login page, and will no longer append @ad.stetson.edu to the end of your username.

If you have questions or comments, contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu.

Due to its popularity, Microsoft’s Office 365 is often spoofed in phishing attacks. Recently, the bad guys are trying a new angle in their Office 365 phishing emails. They’re sending what appears to be “New Voicemail” email notifications. The emails look legitimate, with the help of a Microsoft or Office 365 logo and details about the fake voicemail, such as the caller’s phone number and the length of the message. To increase their chances of success, the bad guys are using two different emails:

  1. One email includes a fake play button with a link that you’re instructed to click on to listen to your message.
  2. The other email includes an HTML attachment that you’re instructed to open to listen to your message.

If you click on the phishing link or open the HTML attachment, you’ll be redirected to a fake login page that appears to be the Microsoft Office 365 login portal. If you mistakenly enter your credentials here, they’ll be immediately stolen.

Remember the following to protect yourself from these types of attacks:

  • Never click on a link or an attachment that you weren’t expecting. Even if it appears to be from a person of an organization that you’re familiar with, the sender’s email address could be spoofed.
  • If you’re already logged into your email account, you shouldn’t be prompted to log in again, this is a red flag. Before you enter sensitive information on any page, check the domain name. Make sure that the website you are on is correctly spelled and not mimicking a well-known brand or company.
  • Get familiar with the format of your voicemail notification emails. If you’re ever in doubt, contact the proper department in your organization before you click on any links or download attachments.

If you have question or comments, contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu.

Stetson staff members have expressed interest in more “training and development programs.” In response, the Staff Advisory Council has organized the “Inside the Hat” professional development series.

Please join us as Stetson alumnus Sean Tamm, a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones, provides his professional insights into managing our personal finances.

“Financial Building Blocks to Achieve Fiscal Success”
Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Lynn Business Center, room 124

Tamm will discuss such topics as strategic tactics to save for emergencies and basic retirement needs while creating and maintaining a budget and managing debt. He recommends Stetson community members (particularly those attending his session) read the book, “Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein, in advance of the session, though it is not required. “Nudge” assists in explaining the psychological and behavioral element, the “personal” in personal finance.

Tamm looks forward to his visit to campus and assisting the Stetson community in meeting and exceeding their personal financial goals.

In our efforts to improve the network and wireless performance, the Stetson Information Technology department will be performing network upgrades on Thursday evening, Dec 19, from 9 – 11 p.m.

Internet, wireless, and phones in academic and admin buildings on campus will be intermittently unavailable. This will be the conclusion of the project, which will improve the responsiveness and speed of our entire network. This project will entail multiple phases with additional network maintenance periods scheduled.

If you have any questions, please contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu or 386-822-7217.

Hello,

The Stetson Information Technology department is implementing Multi-Factor Authentication  for users with access to the University’s online systems. This additional security feature requires you to complete an extra step (typically on your mobile phone) after you enter your User ID and Password to login while you are off campus.

There are two multi-factor authenticators to keep your accounts safe:
Stetson Authenticator – for all Stetson services, such as myStetson, Banner and Blackboard
Microsoft Authenticator – for all Microsoft services, such as Email, SharePoint, OneDrive, etc.

Multi-Factor Authentication will be launched to three separate groups of users starting on the following dates:
• Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, for all non-faculty employees
• Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, for all faculty
• Monday, March 9, 2020, for all students

When you login on or after the go-live date for your group, you will receive a prompt to download the Stetson Authenticator Mobile App and the Microsoft Authenticator Mobile App (available on Apple App Store and Google Play) on your iOS or Android phone; set up your multi-factor authentication preferences; and follow the instructions to complete the login.

You also have the option to enroll to use multi-factor authentication before the respective go-live dates. Please see the link https://my.stetson.edu/apps/mfainfo/ for details.

There are five main options for multi-factor authentication:
A.  Receive a notification on your mobile device via the Authenticator app.
B.  Read a one-time-use token from the Authenticator app and enter it on the screen provided.
C.  Receive a one-time-use token via text message on your registered phone and enter it on the screen provided.
D.  Receive a phone call on your registered phone and respond to it using the prompts.
E. Receive a one-time-use token via a non-Stetson email that you will indicate during sign up. (This option is only available for Stetson Authenticator).

You will also have the option to trust your frequently used browsers so that you will not be prompted to use multi-factor authentication for 30 days while using those browsers. In addition, the Stetson Authenticator mobile app has biometric authentication capabilities. You can use your phone’s TouchID or FaceID (fingerprint and face recognition capabilities) if applicable while responding to the notifications you will receive (Option A above).

IT will continue to send updates as the launch dates approach.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu.

Exciting news! With a new year will come a new and improved platform to log service and philanthropic impacts. Be on the lookout in the following weeks for more information about this exciting new platform, GivePulse. As such, we ask that everyone submits their service/involvement entries before the end of the semester as we will be transitioning over winter break.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Center for Community Engagement.

In our efforts to improve security, the Stetson Information Technology department recommends that you turn off your computer or manually lock your display screen any time you leave your computer unattended. This will protect the information stored on or accessible from your device and from your profile.

To manually lock your computer’s screen:

For Microsoft Windows
Method 1: On your keyboard, hold down the Windows Logo icon key and the L key on the keyboard at the same time.

Method 2: Open the Start Menu by clicking the Windows Logo icon. Next click the icon

and press Lock.

 

For Macs

Come meet the Stetson Public Safety staff as they table in front of the CUB on Thursday, Dec. 12, from 11 a.m. to noon.

During the One Hour with Public Safety, the staff will be available to talk to students, faculty and staff who have questions or concerns. Students also can register their bikes for free. This service allows Public Safety to store students’ contact information along with the make, model, color and serial number of their bike in case it is lost or stolen.

Teaching and Learning Day will be on Jan. 10 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the CUB. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at this annual gathering of Stetson faculty and staff.

Our focus this year will be high-impact practices and to do that we are trying a different format. We have many faculty and staff at Stetson who are already making innovative use of high-impact practices to improve student learning. So, instead of a guest speaker, we decided to showcase some of these people in a way that will encourage sharing ideas and having conversations across programs and departments.

The day will be structured into workshop blocks led by members of the Stetson community on themes such as global learning, writing-intensive courses, community-engaged learning, internships and learning communities. The schedule will allow everyone to attend multiple workshops and hopefully jumpstart some new conversations about the ways we employ high-impact practices at Stetson.

All members of the Stetson faculty and staff are invited to attend. The morning starts with breakfast available at 8:30 a.m. and concludes with a lunch served at 12:30 p.m. Full details will be sent early in the new year.

We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Robin Kazmarek’s bon voyage party will take place this Thursday, Dec. 12, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Rinker Welcome Center, McGraw Atrium.  Light refreshments will be served, and a short presentation will occur at 12:30 p.m.
