After December 12, 2019, all GrantHub users will be required to use a password that is at least 15 characters in length.
Why require longer passwords?
Foundant Technologies prioritizes the security of our clients' information. As part of this ongoing effort, we are taking the steps to become SOC 2 compliant. SOC compliance is part of AICPA's (American Institute of CPAs) Service Organization Control reporting platform and is one of the most common compliance requirements for technology-focused organizations. Achieving and maintaining this compliance demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the privacy, confidentiality, and security of our clients' information. One element to achieve this compliance level is to require secure passwords for all our products, including GrantHub.
What will change?
All GrantHub users will be required to set a password that is a minimum of 15 characters in length. If your password does not already meet this requirement, you will be prompted to update your password once this change takes effect. There are no requirements for using multiple character types in your new password, but we encourage you to consider your own organization's guidelines for creating secure passwords.
If your password is not at least 15 characters - you will be prompted to update it the next time you login.
