Tuesday, October 27, 2020
  • Implementation of mandatory two-factor authentication postponed until November 17

  • If you do not enrol your device with Duo Security by November 17, you will not be able to access 2FA supported systems

2FA token shipment delay causes implementation date to be postponed

The delivery of 2FA Yubikey tokens to Information Systems & Technology (IST) was significantly delayed due to a cross-border shipping issue. To allow time for the tokens to be programmed and mailed to those who require them, the implementation of mandatory 2FA has been postponed until Tuesday, November 17.

Individuals who requested a token will receive an email from IST once the tokens have been mailed.

Are you ready for November 17?
