Information Security Office

The Information Security Office oversees the Weber State University community's efforts to protect its computing and information assets and to comply with information-related laws, regulations, and policies. The ISO's approach to security is more proactive than reactive, although we give priority response to incidents that have institution-level impact or that require university-wide coordination.

DUO Authentication

DUO is a third party 2-factor authentication system that the university has implemented. It can help to protect access to your accounts in the event that your password is stolen or compromised.

There are several ways by which Duo can be used to authenticate the user. Users can use a smartphone, landline, such as their office or home phones, a token that can be requested from the Information Security Office
