Why do we have to change our password after every 180 days?
Password changes every 180 days are a requirement by our IT auditing firm. As Wintec is a Government Institution, we are bound by certain criteria, including the security of our IT network and any staff and student accounts. This may be similar to your online banking account, where a password must be changed after so many months for security reasons.
