Data Protection Risk Assessment

A Data Protection Risk Assessment (DPRA) is a process involving the Service Delivery and Quality group, the Information Security group, and the Privacy Office that is used to determine the level of risk to security and privacy of data associated with the purchase and use of an IT system or service.

Multi-factor Authentication​​

Duo is the university’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) mechanism that protects your MyCarletonOne (MC1) account from illicit login attempts. When Duo is enabled, logging onto many university services requires that you provide something you know (your MC1 username and password), and something you have (your phone or tablet configured with the Duo app).
