Security update: Two-factor authentication roll out brought forward - Thursday 14th January 2021

14 January 2021

Since the successful launch of two-factor authentication in CoreHR in December 2020, CSD has brought forward the roll-out of this security measure across a number of business-critical systems.

The acceleration of this project is to ensure our systems and services are protected against varied and increasing security threats.

Over the next two weeks, CSD will apply two-factor authentication on the following systems:
Apps Anywhere - https://apps.liv.ac.uk
VPN - https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/csd/vpn/

The Computing Services Department has partnered with industry experts, Duo Security, to provide two-factor authentication, strengthening the protection around university data, and reducing the risk of cybercrime.
