Passwords Expire

  • Passwords expire every 6 months.

Password Security

  • YOUR password is YOUR responsibility.
  • Passwords must be at least 14 characters long. Longer passwords (12 or more characters) are the most secure.
  • Passwords may not contain your name, the word "password", or the percent % or bracket [] characters nor the at @ symbol.
  • Including symbols and numbers can make passwords harder to guess.
  • It is trivial for computers to crack short passwords regardless what characters are used.
  • Cybercrime is frequently conducted from ordinary user accounts, don't let yours be one of them.
