IU poised to protect systems against cyberattacks

IU offers new methods for protecting emails.

Recent warnings from the White House have raised concerns nationally about cybersecurity. IU is well poised to protect against cyberattacks and encourages the IU community to remain vigilant. 

IU is offering enhanced protection for emails and systems with the widespread use of two-factor authentication and the implementation of Microsoft Safe Links and Safe Attachments. These improvements to email security have reduced the emphasis on using digital certificates, which were deployed at IU in response to a significant phishing incident in 2016. Users may still use digital certificates, and external communications partners may require them in rare situations.

Meanwhile, everyone in the IU community is advised to be wary of suspicious emails, to be careful about what you click on, and to watch for Duo pushes you didn’t initiate. Remember to report suspicious activity.
