Why is MFA being required for NCEdCloud?

 

As a part of continuing efforts to enhance the security posture of statewide IT systems, and due to the access users with NCEdCloud privileged roles (LEA AdministratorLEA Data Auditor, LEA Help Desk, and LEA Student Help Desk) have to student and employee data, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will now be required for users with any of these roles in the NCEdCloud IAM Service.  NCDPI implemented MFA for these privileged users statewide, as of 2019. More information can be found on the NCEdCloud MFA webpage.
