On Monday, October 19, Ohio State's eSignature service (DocuSign) will now be protected by a multifactor authentication service, BuckeyePass (Duo). Ohio State is expanding its use of multi-factor authentication to increase the level of security that prevents unauthorized individuals from accessing university information.
eSignature is a university service that uses DocuSign, a digital application allowing users to securely sign, initial and enter other information on an electronic document rather than a physical copy. BuckeyePass is a multifactor authentication service provided to Ohio State faculty, staff, students and student employees. It helps protect your account even if your password is stolen.

Most of us have been completing cybersecurity for the past several years. Starting Monday, October 28 , you will have new choices -- choose what you learn and how you learn it.
