Tip of the Week May 01, 2023
We strive to make your Volgistics account secure behind the scenes, and prevent unauthorized users from gaining access by using three-part authentication for login, and security blocks to prevent repeated login attempts.
However, security experts feel that the greatest threat to security is the use of easy-to-guess passwords. Passwords such as the ones listed here make it easier for unauthorized users to gain access to your account. We encourage account Administrators to require strong passwords for System Operators. Experts recommend that passwords be at least 12 characters long. You can find information about password strength settings in help topics 2236 System Operator Ground Rules and 1305 Volunteer & Coordinator Passwords.
Please note that if an unauthorized user does hack a password to gain access to one particular account, they will only have access to that account’s information. The data in other accounts is not accessible. Similarly, if a volunteer’s login information for VicNet is jeopardized, only that particular volunteer’s information is available in the VicNet account.
