As part of our ongoing security enhancement program, in Portugal we’ve introduced a range of enhancements to secure and protect your LawMaster data. System Administrators have the ability to:
- Set the minimum length of passwords
- Define the password strength borders for Weak/Moderate and Moderate/Strong. New passwords cannot be set if they are determined as Weak. Users will see a visual indicator of the password strength when they add or modify their password.
- Password encryption has also been strengthened.
To implement the new password policies the System Administrator can force password changes by setting the password expiry parameter.
Setting time limits for how long the payroll session is inactive is now possible. If there is no activity in the session after a nominated time period, users will need to enter their password and 2-factor authentication again to continue using payroll. You can also set an absolute timeout setting for a defined number of hours.
