Help Desk Faculty: MFA - Multi Factor Authentication

Multi Factor Authentication Announcement (5/9/2022)

To All Faculty, Adjunct Faculty and Staff,

In order to protect CCSNH’s systems and data, and retain our cyber security liability insurance, the Chancellor’s Office is implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) at CCSNH & all NH community colleges over the next several weeks. Attempted data breaches are occurring at an alarming rate and are becoming increasingly complicated. The information stolen can include PII, usernames, and passwords. Passwords alone are no longer sufficient to protect critical data. Adding MFA will help remediate the risk of attack and data loss. MFA credentialing is used frequently for many personal tasks you likely perform online already, such as banking. The goal is to complete the implementation before the end of the summer.

 MFA will be a second authentication credential in addition to the traditional Easylogin username and password you currently use. If you access CCSNH systems (such as Banner, Canvas, SIS, Email, ZOOM, and others) or M365 (word, excel, outlook, etc.), you will be required to use MFA. Once MFA is introduced you will need to authenticate on a regular basis, for example, every 12 hours for web-based applications or if a new browser session is initiated.  Applications such as Outlook, Word, Teams, etc. installed on a desktop will prompt for MFA every 90 days.

 Additional communication, instructions, and FAQs will be shared as the date to implement MFA for Manchester Community College approaches. At that time, you will need to register for a device to receive the MFA credentials and then use MFA credentials each time you access CCSNH systems.  

If you have any questions, please contact Jean Potillo (jpotillo@ccsnh.edu).
