Because stolen, compromised or damaged information can lead to unwanted and unnecessary consequences for both staff members and the university, Ohio State is increasingly expanding the use of multifactor authentication. The Sponsored Guest account process will be the latest system to adopt BuckeyePass protection on November 16.
Last year we began annual Microsoft 365 Access Reviews for External Guests. It is designed to help us align with audit recommendations for reviewing Microsoft 365 Teams and group members. If you received this email, it is NOT spam. However, your caution and instinct to not click on suspicious links is a good one.

The Ohio State University accounts are being targeting in an increasing number of phishing attempts. Bad actors who send these campaigns often try to get login credentials to gain access to account details, and thus Ohio State’s internal systems and protected information. Last month, there were more than 63,000 credential threat attempts targeting faculty, staff and student email inboxes. While the university’s security systems monitor users’ accounts 24/7 and blocks most of these attempts, a small percentage gets through.
Happy summer! The beginning of the hotter months heralds the arrival of new activities to the Cybersecurity for You (C4U) awareness platform, and with them, a renewed opportunity to improve cybersecurity skills and earn points towards digital rewards.

World Password Day was created by Intel in 2013 to raise awareness about the role strong passwords play in securing our digital lives.
