Important Note Important Note



Make sure to not give your password to anyone. ITS will never ask for your password unless it is related to an ongoing technical issue initiated by you. IN NO OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES should you ever give your password to anyone, EVEN IF you think they are 'someone important', it is 'someone higher up in your chain of command', or they 'are a student worker/employee of the University.'

Additionally, there have been multiple cases where an external website being compromised has led to an ENMU member being compromised because they reused their password. Make sure your ENMU password is unique and never use it for anything else but your ENMU account. 
Remember, per University Policy 60-1-16 & 60-6-2-F "Unauthorized use of an employee's access passwords may be considered criminal activity and treated as such.  [See New Mexico Criminal Code, NMSA 1978, ยง 30-45-1 to-7 (1989 as amended through 2006")]
