SiD has protection against unauthorized account logins. When 5 consecutive incorrect login attempts are made, the account is locked out. The following message appears:
Best practice when STAFF are locked out:
The staff person should notify their data coordinator (a staff member with admin level privileges). The admin person will then remove the existing staff account, then recreate it. This will kick off the whole email confirm and password set process -- and reset any of the lockout data.

Best practice when the DATA COORDINATOR is locked out:
If you are the admin person, you cannot reset your own account. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll remove your existing account and recreate it for you.
