Change User Password Dialog¶
It is a good policy to routinely change your password to protect data, even in what you may consider a ‘safe’ environment. In the workplace, failure to apply an appropriate password policy could leave you in breach of Data Protection laws.
Please consider the following guidelines when selecting a password:
Ensure that your password is an adequate length; 6 characters should be the absolute minimum number of characters in the password.
Ensure that your password is not open to dictionary attacks. Use a mixture of upper and lower case letters and numerics, and avoid words or names. Consider using the first letter from each word in a phrase that you will remember easily but is an unfamiliar acronym.
Ensure that your password is changed regularly; at minimum, change it every ninety days.
The guidelines above should be considered a starting point: They are not a comprehensive list and they will not guarantee security.
Use the Change Password dialog to change your password:
Enter your existing password in the Current Password field.
Enter the desired password for in the New Password field.
Re-enter the new password in the Confirm Password field.
Click the Change Password button to change your password; click Close to exit the dialog.
