Additional security for Microsoft Office 365 users

July 21, 2020

To: All employees

On July 30, 2020, multi-factor authentication (MFA) will be activated for the Microsoft Office 365 site. As of this date, all Ryerson employees logging in to their Microsoft Office accounts for the first time will be prompted to set up MFA credentials.

What is MFA?

Similar to two-factor authentication used at Ryerson, MFA is an additional security control that protects online accounts. When signing in to Office 365, you’ll be asked to enter your password as well as a form of verification to proceed.

Setting up MFA

For help configuring MFA for your Office 365 account, please visit the multi-factor authentication setup instructions on the Computing and Communications Services website. Please note, you’ll need a mobile device to complete setup.


If you have any questions, please contact the Computing and Communications Services (CCS) Help Desk at or 416-979-5000, ext. 556840.
