Zoom: Security changes

On Monday, September 27, Zoom was scheduled to enhance security measures by requiring all meetings to have a passcode, or a waiting room enabled.

After hearing from K-State and other Zoom customers, a decision has been made by Zoom to no longer enforce this security requirement at this time. Instead, IT staff from all K-State campuses will meet to discuss our security needs and determine the best course of action. Continue reading “Zoom: Security changes”

New eID password standards

Password standard changes are here

On April 8, K-State adopted new eID password standards. With these updated standards, most K-Staters will need to change their passwords only one more time and no longer be required to change their eID password every 180 days. If you have already changed your password since April, you will not receive a password change reminder email.

What do I need to do?

When you get the password change reminder email, change your password using the new password standards. Keep the following in mind:

  • Using a passphrase is one of the easiest ways to create a strong password.
  • After you change your password, you will not need to change your password again unless your password becomes compromised.
  • If you are required to change your password more often because of the job you perform, you will still need to follow those job-specific password guidelines.
