The Office of Information Security helps protect people and their information by identifying and managing risk. We develop information security strategy and work with the University community to set information security policies and priorities. We identify where new information security controls are needed or existing security controls can be improved, maintain awareness of information security trends, and communicate with the University advising on all things information security.
Our password complexity policy is changing effective September 1, 2018. We are removing the mixed letter and number complexity requirement and increasing the password expiration interval to 365 days. We are able to do this by checking new passwords against a list of passwords that have been exposed in known data breaches. You can try the new complexity requirements and read the FAQ on the password checker page.
