Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication is now required for SSC cloud-based services like Office 365, and D2L Brightspace. What is MFA and why is it important? Multi-Factor Authentication enhances our cyber security by requiring users to identify themselves by more than a username and password (which can be stolen). MFA requires an additional verification code sent by via email, SMS or to a mobile app (Microsoft Authenticator). You will have a choice of secondary authentication method.

Create or Recover Your Passphrase and Hint

Each instructor will create their own SSC passphrase to use with their network account, as well as, a hint in case the passphrase is forgotten. For security reasons, you will work directly with Network Systems. Please contact Donna Martin at 708-596-2000, extension 2670 to set or recovery your passphrase and hint.

If Donna is not available, please leave a voicemail message with your name, phone number, and the best times to return your call.
