Welcome to the Spring 2020 edition of the Quarterly Security Reminders email, brought to you by Wright State's Chief Information Security Officer. This quarter's newsletter will provide you with information about Wright State's computing environment; hopefully you will find it somewhat interesting!
The goal of the Wright State University IT Security website is to provide information for protecting the University's computing and information resources/data by complying with information-related laws, regulations, policies, and security best practices. We are also concerned with the health of your computer and the protection of your sensitive information.
For your personal protection against malicious internet activity, we encourage you to review the information on this site, specifically the section entitled Do IT Wright, accessible from the menu on the right. You are the only one who can protect your finances, identity, and personal data.
Theft of personal data can occur both at home and at the university workplace, since employees of the university work daily with protected or personal information. If two pieces of information can be put together to provide access to obtain personal documents, security measures must be in place to protect that information. Paying close attention to the information on this website can provide you with valuable insight on how to protect both your information and the University's sensitive data.
The CaTS Help Desk is here to help. If you have questions or concerns about information technology security, please see the Contact Us page.
Beginning Tuesday, January 28, two-factor authentication will be required for Wright State faculty, staff, and student employees when accessing certain services within WINGS Express, regardless of your location or campus network connection.
Which Services Are Affected?
Affected WINGS Express services include:
Beginning January 6th, the self-service Campus password reset function using the ‘Password Management’ link on the WINGS login page will begin requiring either a personal email address, or a mobile phone number currently on file for you.
This change will eliminate the need for your UID/PIN and security questions, and allow you to reset your Campus password through a process similar to your other personal, non-Wright State accounts.
