UITS Monitor: Will your sweetheart remember you this Valentine's Day? Duo will

Will your sweetheart remember you on Valentine’s Day?

Duo will . . . just select “Remember me for 7 days.”

Duo Two-Step Login is a sweet security tool, but frequent logins can sometimes feel needy. If you want fewer Duo logins—without significantly compromising security—select “Remember me for 7 days” when completing a login. Then you’ll be able to log in for seven days (in the browser where you initiated your login) without having to Two-Step for IU logins again.

Cybersecurity and your vote

See how IU experts are helping to safeguard the election process in Indiana.

Whether it’s Russians hacking into the Illinois election database or the phish that took down the computer system for New Orleans, cyberattacks are part of modern life.

That’s where Indiana University comes in. At the invitation of Indiana’s Secretary of State, a team of IU cybersecurity experts led a recent Indianapolis workshop aimed at preventing and mitigating threats to voting results. The team will continue to aid election officials throughout the 2020 campaign.
