dear user,

In order to better protect our accounts data and improve our security, we are implementing more secure password requirements for our systems.  This will affect your password for applications such as your network logon, Epic HyperSpace and web mail (OWA).  This change affects all personnel with access to our network, email and Epic HyperSpace.

IT will be rolling these password changes out over the next several weeks to the entire organization.  

Please click on password-reset [LINK REMOVED] to reset your password here.

The new password requirements are:

·8 characters consisting of three of the four cases:

·Upper (A,B,C,...)

·Lower (a,b,c,...)

·Numeric (1,2,3,4,5...)

·Special (!@#$%)

·Passwords must be changed every 90 days

·Passwords cannot be used for 8 iterations

 More information will be forthcoming as the migration dates become closer.
