Student rollout of Multi-Factor Authentication starting soon
Did you know that phishing and account compromises have seen a significant worldwide increase since the start of the pandemic? Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enrolment significantly reduces instances of an account compromise by over 99%. To deliver this added benefit to student accounts, all new students will be required to enrol into MFA.
Since the mid-1990s, the AIX1 and AIX2 servers have hosted websites belonging to professors, support staff and students, many of which are still active. However, the technology on these machines is largely obsolete. For this reason, we are decommissioning these servers and advise users with websites hosted on them to migrate their information to another platform.
One step closer towards collaborations in research software development
A new Research Software Development team is geared up to start software development projects from the uOttawa research community. Check out how we’re building a research support community and planning to deliver new resources, tools and workshops soon.
