COVID-19 Support Portal - Enhancing Security on your Account
CEnet have established a COVID-19 support portal to assist Diocese and School communities respond during the current pandemic. The portal provides detailed service specific information for Diocese ICT teams to address the most common requests we are seeing across the membership. One of the areas covered in the portal is Access Management and the use of Multi Factor Authentication.

It's easier than you think for someone to steal your password.  Things that can put you at risk of having your password stolen are:
  • Using the same password for other sites or services.
  • ​People watching you type it in.
  • Sharing your password with others.
  • Downloading malicious software and content.
  • Clicking on bad links in email messages.
​Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is a way to help keep bad guys out, even if they do obtain your password.  With MFA (also known as 2-factor or 2-step authentication) you can protect your CEnet account with something you know - like your password, and something you have - like your personal device.

With staff and teachers moving to remote working and teaching arrangements, the risks associated with access to personally identifiable information (PII) become more important than ever before.

Our recent Access Management project delivered a new single sign-on platform using Okta and includes MFA to help secure staff and teacher login accounts, and in turn the private information they have access to.

In previous months, we have been implementing MFA on top of our various administration portals, and as a part of the broader response to COVID-19, we are recommending MFA be more widely adopted for members' own applications and systems.

You can find out more information on MFA at https://www.cenet.catholic.edu.au/mfa.html. If your Diocese is considering introducing MFA more broadly, and would like assistance in getting the capability enabled and configured please contact us directly.
