How often do you change SNMP community strings?

I'm wondering if there's any "best practice" guideline for how often non-SNMPv3 community strings should be changed.

Re: How often do you change SNMP community strings?

The best practice really depends on your own business security. I generally change them yearly as a minimum and also whenever someone leaves that may have access to them. If you are in a high risk area, then they should be changed more frequently.

Hope this helps.
