In every organization, information security ensures the integrity of systems and people data. The same applies to Sococo, using a strong password will keep the user accounts secure and safe. Passwords should never be shared with anyone else unless it is a shared account.
The Sococo Organization's administrator can set up password requirements for all members. It will keep login credentials safe by enforcing strong passwords. As an administrator, it is your role to define the password length, set the required characters and identify the duration of force reset periods.
