HSPH Secure Passwords Rescheduled to Monday, Feb 7th

Date changed to Monday, February 7th due to weather.

On Monday, February 7th, we will complete our secure password migration for all HSPH systems. This will only affect a small number of HSPH users.

For those of you who have already completed this process in July-September, there will be no change on Thursday.

Each user affected will be required to reset their password after logging into either Novell on a computer or the Groupwise email system.  

Additionally, we have rolled out a new service that will allow you to reset your password 24-7-365 without having to call the HSPH Helpdesk.

To use the HSPH self-service system, each user will be required to establish four security challenge questions.

Starting on Thursday, you can visit https://password.sph.harvard.edu to setup your challenge questions and change your password.

It should take users no longer than 5 minutes to make the required changes.

Thank You!
