Tax season is upon us and with it we often see an increase in phishing and malware attacks trying to steal your identity, and in some cases, filing fraudulent tax returns using your identity. Have you done all you can to protect your identity and data?

In order to help you protect valuable data, like your electronic tax statements (W-2s), or your direct deposit information, Tufts recommends that staff and faculty enroll in the new two-factor authentication (2FA) service with Duo Security.

Learn more about 2FA including why you should enroll, how to access the self-service portal, and where to find helpful documentation and videos in the feature story on AccessTufts.
