Regular Password Changes Are Necessary

Employees are also increasingly accessing their work accounts from remote locations, so users need to be educated on the necessity of changing their passwords regularly.Note, however, that there is a difference between regularly and frequently, and it is important not to overdo the frequency of changes.
