Managing password security
To help ensure a secure operating environment, use the following password recommendations when adding user profiles:
- Create unique usernames/passwords for each user.
- Do not create a common username/password to be shared by all employees.
- Require that passwords be changed at regular intervals, such as every 45 days.
- Do not allow users to write their password on a piece of paper and attach it to their monitor or leave it where it can be easily found, such as under the keyboard.
- Remove user accounts for individuals who no longer require access or no longer work at the facility.
- Require that users create a robust/complex password.
- Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals, and special characters.
- Use a minimum of 8 characters for a user account and a minimum of 12 characters for privileged accounts.
A new profile with a password that does not meet these requirements will not be created. Password strength is indicated by a green line in the password field. Only passwords that display a green line are acceptable. You must enter your current password to create a new password.
