Password Policy Standards

The biggest technical challenge I faced this week would be setting a password policy up for office 365. There is not interface to do this through the 365 GUI. Instead Powershell must be used along with the downloads found on the site below. Then Using Set ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned and then running Import-Module MSOnline. The following command can be run to set a user’s password to never expire Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName user@mydomain.com -PasswordNeverExpires $true and this command can be used to set the user policy for the entire domain to expire after a certain amount of days. Set-MsolPasswordPolicy –ValidityPeriod 100 -DomainName <domain.com>
