TO: Faculty and Staff, All campuses

FROM: Tufts Technology Services

Effective July 1, the new hire orientation process will be revamped to include 2FA.

Placing a high value on security, Tufts will require two-factor authentication (2FA) for all faculty, staff, and affiliates. Highlights of the 2FA policy include: 

  • Effective July 1, 2017: ALL new hires (including faculty, staff, affiliates) will be required to enroll in 2FA during the on-boarding process 
  • Effective September 30, 2017: ALL current faculty, staff and affiliates will be required to enroll in 2FA 

To facilitate the rollout of this important service, 2FA enrollment has been folded into the new hire process, a collaborative effort with Human Resources (HR), Tufts Technology Services (TTS), and Tufts Support Services (TSS).
