Phishing and Scam Email

What is "phishing"?
Attackers attempt to obtain information by posing as a trusted individual or institution and asking you to provide information.


It is strongly recommended that personally owned computers connecting to the UND network have anti-virus software running at all times.

All UND owned computers connecting to UND network are required to have university’s antivirus software. UND provides SCEP (System Center Endpoint Protection) free of charge. For additional information about endpoint protection, please visit with your IT department or UND Tech Support.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-Factor authentication (MFA) is an online security system for your sensitive and personal information. It requires more than just a password for access. The goal is to create a layered defense for your data so that an unauthorized person finds it more difficult to access. If your password becomes compromised, there will be another level of security to keep your information safe.

UND uses Duo Security MFA to provide you with even better security for your sensitive information.

Security Key

Users can purchase an all-in-one security key through the Yubico website. In order to work with Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), keys will need to be set up by a Duo admin and assigned to a user.

Protect your online accounts with the strongest security. Use the YubiKey and tap to authenticate. No more typing codes on your phone. Works with Google, Facebook, Dropbox, LastPass and hundreds more services.

UND Secure Wireless

UND now offers a more secure wireless experience by implementing the UND Secure wireless network. This secure wireless connection will include complete encryption between endpoints. The current UND wireless network relies on application encryption.
