Password Change Policy
In order to maintain the security of your account and files, it is recommended to change passwords regularly. The following policy will go into effect on February 3rd, 2004. You will have 14 days to change your password and then the schedule below goes into effect.
For access to the network, passwords must be at least 6 characters long and must contain at least one CAPITAL letter, one lowercase letter and one number. The password must be changed at least once every 120 days.
For access to Banner, passwords must be at least 6 characters long and include at least one special character or number. The password must be changed at least once every 120 days.
For access to privileged accounts, (these are accounts used by operations and information technology) passwords must be at least 8 characters and include at least one special character or number. The password must be changed at least once every 30 days.
NOTES: All passwords are case sensitive -- PassWord is different than password.
Do not share your password. You are responsible for anyone logged into your account.
Do not write your password down . If you must keep a record of it, do not store it in your desk or on your monitor.
Do not pick passwords that would be easy for someone to guess, such as a password containing:
- Your name.
- Your children's or partner's name.
- Stress related words, like "deadline" or "work".
- Sports teams.
- The current, or your favorite season.
- Repeated characters like aaaaaaa, fffffff.
- The current month.
