Two-Step Login Requirement for CIT Sponsored NetIDs Starts March 17, 2020

As CIT staff are increasingly aware, Two-Step Login adds an extra layer of security to your Cornell NetID and password. Use of Cornell's two-factor authentication service reduces your risks of account compromise, identity theft, data breaches, and financial loss.

By March 17, 2020, all CIT contract staff with Sponsored NetIDs will be required to use Two-Step Login for Office 365 and CUWebLogin. If you haven't already, we recommend proactively opting in to both before the final deadline. For details on how to do this, visit Opt In to Two-Step Login for Office 365 and Expand Where You Use Two-Step Login.

After March 17, all CIT contract staff will automatically be opted in to Two-Step Login for Office 365 and CUWebLogin, and they will no longer see the tab on the Manage Your Two-Step Login page that allows users to opt out of the service.

  • Two-Step Login for Office 365 provides safeguards against malicious actors who attempt to access your email, calendar, contacts, or shared Office documents. To learn more about Two-Step Login for Office 365, visit Before You Start Using Two-Step Login with Office 365.
  • Expanding Two-Step Login to include all Cornell services that require CUWebLogin further protects your authentication credentials. It's one of the best measures you can take to protect your personal information and Cornell's data.

All of us in CIT recognize the sensitivity of the materials we use every day. Requiring contract staff to use Two-Step Login for Office 365 and CUWebLogin increases security for our communications and shared documents. This builds on the existing university requirement that non-academic staff always use Two-Step Login with services that use CUWebLogin. For questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
