2FA provides an extra layer of security by requiring a second authentication method—one that isn’t your password—to confirm a user’s identity. The second method is something a user has physical access to, like a cellphone or tablet. This ensures that even if a hacker manages to obtain a user’s login credentials, the information is useless without access to the user’s secondary device.
When the date for 2FA enforcement is finalized, further campus-wide communication will be forthcoming.
Further information is online at it.utah.edu/2fa.

“The museum has been a member of ASTC for almost 25 years, and a governing member for about seven,” said George. “With so many changes taking place in science education today, it’s an exciting time to collaborate with such a diverse and innovative group of science educators and professionals.”
As a new director, George will work with ASTC to create and manage global partnerships, promote informal STEM education and program support for member institutions, work with government agencies in support of science interests and more. Since its beginning in 1973, ASTC has grown from its original 20 founding members to more than 650 museum and science center members located in every U.S. state and across 50 countries.
