Re: inital passwords for students

Hi Davis,

 

We use DOB as the initial password.

We require the password to be changed annually for AD, and every 120 days
for the Banner portal. There are currently no password changes enforced for
our learning management systems. 

 

We would prefer to enforce annual password changes for students, but the
portal is back ended by our Banner ERP which includes staff and faculty
financial data, hence the forced change.

Subject: [SECURITY] inital passwords for students

 

Group, 

 

Looking for guidance on emailing initial passwords to students, dose anyone
do this?  What do you use for the initial password?  How often do you
require students to change there password?

 

 

Thank you,
