Why is the University implementing Multi-Factor Authentication?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

MFA imageEdinburgh Napier University is under constant attack from cyber criminals who want to compromise our Staff and Student accounts.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of security that prevents those attackers from accessing your account even if they discover your username and password.

The implementation of MFA will strengthen security as well as improving compliance with Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation ​which we achieved in January 2019.
