Enroll in Duo & maintain access to DML Resources

December 17, 2018

The Duo software,  provided by the University Information Services department, uses a process called “two-factor authentication” to ensure that Georgetown accounts are protected.

Duo enrollment is required by December 22, 2018 for anyone that has an employment relationship with Georgetown.  After the 22nd,  non-Duo users will be blocked from Georgetown accounts, including DML resource access, until enrolled.
