Purpose of RegulationThis regulation defines the procedures for the expiration of passwords for ITCS enterprise systems. This regulation affects the use of ITCS-maintained systems and enterprise servers. This regulation has been designed to meet NC State audit requirements governing access to sensitive data
Person(s) with Primary ResponsibilityThe Chief Technology Officer is the primary person charged with administering the ITCS Password Expiration Regulation. The systems administrators for the ITCS enterprise systems will be responsible for the notification and expiration of passwords.
Passwords on ITCS enterprise systems will expire on a regular basis, currently no longer than ninety (90) days, with notification to users via e-mail or system messaging at least 3 times in the two weeks prior to expiration. The only exceptions to this regulation are those systems that do not have the capability to force password changes.
