Who will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in NCEdCloud?


As of November 2019, any PSU employee with NCEdCloud privileged roles (LEA Administrator, LEA Data Auditor, LEA Help Desk, LEA Student Help Desk, School Help Desk, or School Student Help Desk), will be required to use MFA and enter a One-Time Password (OTP) with each login to the NCEdCloud RapidIdentity portal.

In addition, with the increase in phishing scams and the rising cost of cybersecurity insurance, many PSUs are choosing to require MFA for a select group of employees that handle privileged data (Finance, HR, student data, etc.), and in some cases for ALL employees who access online resources.
