Tag: Multifactor Authentication
Cybercriminals’ top priority is a real-life payout. For Ohio State student systems, that means criminals may target money that comes to students in the form of refunds, grants, scholarships, loans or other financial aid. If criminals get your user name and crack your password, they may be able to divert funds scheduled for direct deposit into your bank account and send the money to their account instead.
Beginning Sunday, November 5, multifactor authentication will be added to the Student Information Systems behind Buckeye Link that store personal and financial information. You may already be using multi-factor authentication to log in to other accounts at your bank, email, gaming sites or social media sites.
