New password self-service process

As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping the LLCC network secure, IT is asking all employees who have not changed their passwords since Aug. 1, 2018 to do so by tomorrow, Nov. 16. Passwords that have not been updated by the end of work tomorrow will be reset automatically.

Instructions for how to go about changing your password can be found here: http://it.llcc.edu/change-password.html.

We recognize that this will present a hardship to some users, but this is necessary to ensure that our infrastructure is secure. The new password self-service process automatically blocks commonly used passwords as well as easily guessed passwords. This will significantly improve our overall network security.

Password management changing today

The college is switching password management away from WebAdvisor to a Microsoft cloud solution today, Aug. 13. The first time you access Microsoft Office 365 on a web browser, you will be prompted to provide a secondary email address, a cell phone number or some answers to security questions. These will be used later to send you codes to verify your identity in the event you need to change your password in the future.

Please contact the IT Help Desk should you have any questions at helpme@llcc.edu or 786-2555.
