C2HR to get security upgrades

Cyber-attacks — specifically phishing emails — continue to rise this year. Amid this heighted attention to online security, Human Resources and Information Technology (IT) are working together to give the C2HR system a security upgrade.

“We are incorporating more sophisticated features to increase protection and help reduce risks even when phishing attempts are successful,” said Sal Ortega, director, Enterprise Network Security.

IT will install the upgrades in phases, with the first group going live soon. The upgrade will be complete by Nov. 13.

Here are the updates:

  • Addition of last 4 digits of your bank account and the Banking Institution name to notification for direct deposit changes (i.e., the payroll confirmation email)
  • Modifications to contact information will be sent to both old and new email personal addresses along with work email
  • Notifications of the change will be sent at randomized times instead of immediately following the change
  • Weekly notification when a change is made to all email accounts
  • Direct deposit and contact information (email and phone number) changes in C2HR delayed by 24 hours and numerous changes cannot occur during that time
