A message from the Chief Information Security Officer:
“This week will see the introduction of a new university password policy. This is part of our programme to enhance network security and protect personal, commercial and research data.
It follows the introduction of intruder lockout last year (a temporary lock-out function where 5 incorrect login attempts are made) and this year’s implementation of the screen lock security feature.
The new password standards for the University are recognised security standards. The following will apply:
The introduction of more complex passwords will remove the need for these to be regularly changed — i.e. users will be able to keep their password for life.
In the next few months we will be requesting that all staff change their passwords. Student passwords will follow ready for the new academic year.
Detailed communications will be issued directly to staff from May 2018″
