As national Cybersecurity Awareness Month draws to a close, be sure to take our spot-the-phish quiz to be entered in the final drawing for a Google Chromecast and four Duke men’s basketball tickets.
Also, all Duke faculty, staff and students are encouraged to take these actions to protect themselves online:
- Enroll in and use multi-factor authentication. This provides an additional layer of security when logging in or performing transactions online. Also known as two-step verification, multi-factor authentication requires a user to log in using a password and randomly generated code. Register for the service on the OIT website: www.oit.duke.edu/mfa.
- Sign up for LastPass. The premium password management service is free for Duke users and saves passwords to an easy-to-use vault. Browse for LastPass under "Security & Networking" on OIT's software site: https://oit.duke.edu/comp-print/software/
We'll select winners from among all Duke community members who have taken the phishing quiz, enrolled in multi-factor authentication and signed up for LastPass. Winners will be announced on this blog next week.
