Enhanced password security for employees

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014 between 8:30 and 9 a.m. SF State passwords for all Administration and Finance, Advancement, and Student Affairs employees will have enhanced password security rules:

  • Require passwords to expire after 180 days
  • Lock accounts for 15 minutes following 8 failed password attempts
  • Require new passwords to be different to old passwords


If you have not changed your password in the past 180 days, do so now from: http://www.sfsu.edu/reset

Don't Take the Bait


On October 30, 2017, ITS introduced SF State’s Information Security Awareness program for faculty and staff. The program consists of monthly security advisory training messages and phishing training exercises where simulated phishing messages are sent to employees. The launch of this campaign enabled Exchange users to see a Report Phishing icon in Outlook 2013 and 2016, or a Report Phishing link in Outlook Web Access (OWA).
