Letter to the campus regarding password security

Dear Campus Community,

A commitment to strong and robust passwords is an important aspect of UCR's overall effort to ensure campus systems, data, and electronic tools are secure and safe. In collaboration with various campus oversight groups and UCOP, C&C has been reviewing campus electronic password practices and procedures. As a result of these discussions, C&C is making available a suite of best practices relating to password creation and maintenance: the ultimate goal of this effort is to provide improved campus security, data integrity, and systems reliability.
