New password policy for Office 365

IT Department has slightly adjusted the password policy that applies to Office 365 accounts.

The most important two changes are:

- Minimum password length has been increased from 8 to 12 characters

- Maximum password age has been increased from 3 months to 1 year (the system will ask you to change your password in every year instead of every 3 months)

 

We hope that these changes will result in a more user friendly password policy, while keeping us aligned with the security best practices.
