Passwords

Create a secure password and keep it secret.

There are multiple cyber security workshops taking place throughout the month of October. Register today!

Your password protects you against fraud and loss of confidential information. Passwords are your first line of defense, yet few people choose passwords that are truly secure.

  • Change your passwords regularly.
  • Use a different password for each account.
  • Your passwords should not include any names (yours, your friends’, family, pets; familiar numbers associated with you (addresses, phone numbers, license plates, birthdays), any form of your username, or ordinary “dictionary” words!
  • Examples of poor passwords are: Mom, Fluffy, Desk, Password, 12345, Qwerty
  • Password should include both letters and numbers as well as symbols if possible.
  • Choose a password that is as long as possible,
    but one that you can still remember

    Example of a good password is: !W@d&$n! (It was a dark and stormy night!)
  • Never give out your password to anyone, for any reason. Your password is yours, and you will be accountable for everything that happens with it.

If you feel that your computer has contracted spyware, please contact the IT Help Desk.
