To all staff in VC Administration units:

Thank you to all staff in the VCA Division who have signed up for CalNet 2-Step Verification. We had a tremendous response to our initial request. Colleagues have reported that both signing up and using 2-Step is simple.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to sign-up, please follow the links below to sign up for CalNet 2-Step Verification before December 22, 2017. 2-Step Verification provides an important, additional layer of protection against the theft of your CalNet credentials by ensuring you are the only person accessing your account.

2-Step Verification will be enforced on your account in the new year and you will have temporary difficulty accessing your account until you complete the enrollment process. Signing up for 2-Step Verification takes just a few minutes and you’ll find it is easy to use.

Thank you for helping to make our campus more secure.
