New Protected Location for Instructions and Forms Containing Sensitive Data
To reduce the risks of data loss, Loyola University Chicago will begin moving some of its documents and forms that deal with sensitive data to a more secure location. In the coming weeks, some of these forms on the HR and Finance webpages will be updated to require a Loyola login via UVID and password to access. This modification will ensure that only authorized personnel have access to the processes that specifically deal with sensitive information.
MFA protects you even if your Loyola password becomes compromised by using your LUC UVID and password plus one additional authentication method to verify your identity. MFA is required by the end of the Spring Semester. Enroll today at luc.edu/its/services/mfa/LEARN MORE
