How to create a password

New passwords must contain a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and other symbols.

Password requirements:

  1. must be at least 8 characters in length

  2. must not be a word that can be found in a dictionary

  3. must not be a name (of person, place, films or books) or terminology

  4. must not contain personal information about you (e.g. address, zip or phone number)

  5. must contain characters from at least 3 of 4 categories:

  • upper case letters (A-Z)

  • lower case letters (a-z)

  • numbers (0-9)

  • symbols which are neither letters or numbers (e.g. !()/%+.»{|}[\],)

How often should I change my password?

You are required to change your password at least once per year. To increase security we recommend that you change it more frequently. If you have not changed you password for over a year, you will be prompted by e-mail to do so. If you do not within a month of receiving such a notfication change your password, your account will be locked. The e-mail address remains active, but you will no longer able to access the account.

An account which has been locked for more than a year will automatically be deleted.

For security purposes, all information submitted during account registration will be encrypted.

When should I change my password?

Change your password at the end of your work day. It takes a little while before your new password is activated at all access points throughout the IT system.

Why must my password be so complex and why do I have to keep changing it?

The reason for the password complexity is the wide spread availability of hacking software designed to guess passwords. This use words from dictionaries and test verious combinations of common uses. Standard hacker programs have several hundred codes for discovering passwords of the type replace-i-with-the-number-1, replace-s-with-$, move-the-last-letter-to-the-front etc.

To protect your password from such hacker software decoding, we have strict rules for creating safe passwords.
