How to choose a good password ??

Choosing a strong password can seem tricky - a weak password will be easy for people or automated attack tools to work out, while a strong one may seem hard to remember. The easiest way of creating strong but memorable passwords is to use a phrase, and take the first letter of each word, plus adds at least one number. Remember the phrase and you'll be able to remember your password.

The following guidelines apply for your IT Services password:
  • It must be 8 to 16 characters
  • It must not be your username
  • It must not be your current password
  • It must not be your initial password
  • It must contain a mix of upper and lower case letters and at least one number
  • It must contain at least one letter
  • It must not be based on a dictionary word
