WHY DO WE REQUIRE STRONGER PASSWORDS?While many experts in online security recommend the use of strong passwords, myPay must also comply with stricter requirements from the Department of Defense.
Department of Defense Directive 8500.01E requires that all applications and systems connected to DoD networks will comply with DoD-approved security configuration guidelines developed by Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The security configuration guidelines may be found in the Department of Defense Application Security and Development Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), Version 3, Release 4.
myPay, like all DFAS systems, is part of the DoD network.
