Event Type

As more people keep private, sensitive, or research information in online accounts, the importance of keeping these accounts secure has become more important. In this hands-on session, we show how to perform a threat assessment of your online accounts and information, how to secure your personal accounts by creating and managing strong passwords, and how to further secure your logins by using 2-Factor authentication tools.

You will learn how to evaluate the risks and considerations of securing your online accounts and information through the use of threat modeling. You’ll also explore methods to secure your accounts by creating a diceware passphrase. Finally, you’ll see a demonstration of a password manager, and learn how to further secure your logins with the 2-Factor authentication tool, Duo Push.

This session is led by staff of the University Library’s Connected Scholarship team, accompanied by information security experts from U-M’s Information and Technology Services and LSA’s Information Technology team.
