Additional protection has been enabled on SAMIS (Student & Applicant Management Information System), which staff are most likely to use if your role involves work such as student admissions, registration, teaching and placements.

When you use SAMIS you will now have the security benefits of Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) when logging in. This further protects our sensitive information and data, and provides additional security controls to reduce the impact of a cyber attack.

Authenticating your identity

Thank you for setting up your authentication methods so you can verify your identify when you sign in.

The additional security protection is only triggered for your first sign in each day, or if you sign in from a different device or location.

Suitable authentication methods

If you haven't already, you'll need to have either the authenticator app, phone (text/sms), or alternative phone, set up to be able to authenticate your sign in to University systems.
