A recent security incident recently prompted the Information Security and Policy Office to recommend that all students, faculty, and staff to change their HawkID password. Response to messages encouraging password changes has been positive, but it would be helpful for IT professionals to continue encouraging more end users to take this precautionary measure. The HawkID password change tool is available at: http://hawkid.uiowa.edu.
Chief Information Security Officer Jane Drews has followed up directly with individuals whose credentials were known to be captured in the incident to make certain they change their password. The incident remains under investigation.
