Re: Password security?

I wouldn't mind if an institute I might have worked at had enforced one of password complexity *or* password expiry for senior staff, but they were instructed not to by those same senior staff.

While many universities/colleges have moved to improve their security for their staff and students the arcane and convoluted politics of other institutions mean the these same problems exist and will not go away until there is (a) a change of personnel at the top of the organisation or (b) a major incident at said institution which itself causes (a).

AC for the same reasons...
