Reading the status of a ticket can never be harmful. Since ARIN won’t send full-text ticket updates via email, 2FA for that can be rather tedious.

Responding to a ticket can’t be any more harmful than the original intent of the ticket.

Initiating a ticket is a valid target for protection. Other ticket operations should be 2FA optional.
