Here's some password guidance for yourself and users in your organization. Make sure to let your users know about these recommendations and enforce the recommended password policies at the organizational level.
Don't use a password that is the same or similar to the one you use on any other websites

Here are a few recommendations for keeping your organization as secure as possible.
An 8-character minimum length requirement (longer isn't necessarily better)
Special character composition or symbols. For example, *&(^%$
- Uppercase characters
- Non-alphanumeric characters such as numbers, 1-0
To encourage users to think about a unique password, we recommend keeping a reasonable 8 to 10-character minimum length requirement.
For safer and stronger account security, do ENABLE the Two Factor Authentication (2FA) or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) method wherever it is available.
