NU Online Security- Passphrases not passwords

In an effort to increase our online security, Technology Services requests that you to use a passphrase rather than a password wherever possible. This protects your access with short sentence rather than a simple word. Use a unique combination of letters and number. For Example, Th1s1sMyP@ssphr@se (This is my passphrase). 

We encourage you to watch this one minute video about password creation by Google:

Remember, UTS will never send you unsolicited emails asking for confidential information, such as your password or account details. If you have entered personal information after clicking on a link or suspect fraudulent behaviour, please call the Help Desk immediately at 4342.
