Admin MFA Recovery – What To Do If All Administrators Lose Access To MFA Tokens

If your Cocoon Data Organization Administrators simultaneously lose access to their MFA tokens due to an organization wide device migration or any other reason please follow this guide.

Our mission is to enable the Defense Industrial Base to do their good work to ultimately enable and defend our War Fighters. We recognize that there are some rare circumstances that may lead to a situation where your Cocoon Data administrators lose access to MFA and are unable to access Cocoon Data.
