Changing password for database


Security of confidential data is one of the most important aspect of work with databases in international organisations. It provides protection against unauthorized access and inappriopiate use of essential data. To ensure the safety of data it is important to change password. The need to change password may be caused by many reasons, eg.
  • your password was compromised
  • organization's security policy requires frequent password changes
