ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO
Subject: || Office 365 Protected by Two-Step Login Starting February 27|
I am pleased to announce that campus access to Microsoft Office 365 will
become protected by two-step login effective February 27, 2019. Office
365 includes OneDrive, SharePoint and the online versions of Word,
PowerPoint, Excel and other popular Microsoft applications.
Functionality includes a "Remember me for 7 days" option.

- If you are not currently registered at all for two-step login,
you will bypass additional authentication.
If you are a UC San Diego Health employee and currently use campus'
instance of Office 365 as described above, you will be prompted to use
two-step login for authentication. Please note: Health Information
Services plans to roll out Office 365 to Health employees later this
year, and currently requires two-factor authentication (2FA) using the
same Duo app as campus to access the Clinical Web Portal. Stay tuned for
Health-specific information on additional efforts to secure both
employee and patient information.
