What’s new in cyber security updates at ACU

With the swift global move to digital work, ACU IT have been diligently ensuring our cyber security protections keep pace. To provide the best possible security to ACU staff, we’ve made a few changes to our systems.

Updates to phishing filters

We’ve also updated your Report Email button in the Outlook ribbon. It used to look like this:

This button now displays a drop-down menu to help you report suspicious email

Multi-Factor Authentication – we're nearly there

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has been rolled out to well over half ACU staff accounts. Thank you to everyone who’s enrolled so far. MFA is an incredible step forward in protecting ACU from cyber attacks and will be added to more systems throughout the next 6 to 12 months.
