Subject: Implementation of Strong Passwords for Verizon Conferencing Services

Dear Verizon Conferencing Customer:

To assist you in securing your Verizon Conferencing services and preventing unauthorized access to your conferences, Verizon Conferencing Support will be enforcing strong passwords for access to the Manage My Meetings conferencing portal on December 12, 2014. While your Manage My Meetings account may already comply with this strong password requirement, it will now be enforced for all conferencing users. The strong password requirements will apply to your Manage My Meetings account and will flow through to your access to the Advanced and Customized Net Conferencing services. In addition strong passwords will be required for the Advanced and Customized Net Conference meetings.

Effective December 12, 2014 you will be required to change your Manage My Meetings password to comply with the new password requirements listed below. You also will be prompted to change your Manage My Meetings password every 90 days and to reschedule your existing recurring net conferencing meetings with strong meeting passwords that comply with the meeting password requirements listed below. If you require a shorter than 90-day password renewal duration, please contact your Verizon Account Manager.

Passwords satisfying the minimum Strong Password guidelines are:
  • Unique and difficult to guess
  • Comprised of mixed case letters (upper-case and lower-case).
  • A minimum of 8 characters
  • Comprised of both letters and numbers
  • Written to contain one special character from the set $ - . ! * ,

Your compliance with this strong password requirement is mandatory for your new and existing recurring meetings and should be completed before December 31, 2014

The following language was posted in the Conferencing section within Verizon’s Guide effective on or about November 1, 2014:

Billing.Customer shall be responsible for payment of rates, fees, charges and surcharges incurred for all use of Net Conferencing Services including without limitation, unauthorized use of Net Conferencing Services. This obligation shall not apply to unauthorized use
(1) that is proximately due to Verizon’s negligence or willful misconduct or(2) arises from the unauthorized use of passwords where Customer has used the strong password criteria provided by Verizon on the Verizon Conferencing portal under System Requirements.

The Strong Password guidelines are also available on the Conferencing portal under the System Requirements section:,which contains guidance for password management for user accounts and for meetings.

Cisco has recently published best practices for your WebEx site and meetings. Please refer to the embedded document. 10-6_WebEx-Meetings_All_Customer

Verizon believes that these efforts, in conjunction with the above recommendations, will help maintain the high quality of service delivered to you. Please direct any questions regarding Strong Passwords to Reservations.

Thank you for choosing Verizon Conferencing
