Improved Protection Against Phishing

EmailWhenever you specify a new ITRP password for yourself, you will receive a confirmation email to let you know that your password has been changed. So if someone else somehow manages to take control over your ITRP access and changes your password, you will be informed. This is not new.

From now on, however, this email notification is not only sent to your primary email address (the one you use to log into ITRP). As an extra security precaution, a separate notification is also sent to all other email addresses that are registered in your Person record.

Filtering with a few characters
And we have added some extra information to the notification, such as the IP address from which your password was changed and a hyperlink that allows you to regain control over your access. So if you ever find yourself the victim of a phishing scam, use that link to give yourself a new ITRP password.
