Reminder – New IT Password Policy

A new password policy has been developed to help keep information safe here at GRCC. This policy will make it more difficult for passwords to be guessed or cracked and will provide greater information protection. The policy will require a stronger password consisting of at least 10 characters including one upper case letter, one lower case letter and a number. Beginning January 1, 2012 the IT department will provide a self-serve password change website that will adhere to these new requirements.

One thought on “Reminder – New IT Password Policy

  1. This is so irritating and seems so overkill. When was the college last hacked that led to this policy? It seems a terrible inconvenience that everybody has to suffer just so that a few people who have access to the most sensitive data don’t make us vulnerable. Couldn’t we do a two tier password policy for the vast majority of us that don’t present a vulnerability.
