Success Story: University of Oklahoma Results
University of Oklahoma’s main goal was to encourage better password hygiene and complexity, most recently they observed that only three users out of 15,000 had created a weak master password, demonstrating that their investment in LastPass has encouraged the team to be more password savvy. In the past two years, Aaron acknowledges that due to improved passwords which significantly mitigated any phishing attempts, the team were able to implement overarching password policies. Notably, college or department-based password reset policies that were triggered in as little as 90 days, were replaced with an annual reset policy for all staff and faculty members.
Aaron concludes: “A lot of staff and students are taking advantage of it, which is great to see, and the university manages significantly less password change requests. We’ve found it to be very intuitive and easy to use”
