AbstractGoodman college recently instituted a strict policy that requires students, faculty and staff to change their password every 90 days, and each password much have upper and lower case letters, at least one letter, and at least one charater. Passwords also could not be reused. The policy was adopted after an accreditiation review where auditors severely critisized the college's lax cybersecurity policies. However, members of the college community hate the new policy and say they are extremely inconvenienced. Students have begun protesting by locking adminstrators out of their accounts.
