Someone created an SSISDB database and catalog on one of our SQL 2012 servers.  The master key was not documented during creation.  What is the process to obtain this master key or reset it?

Is this as simple as just specifying a new password for the DMK?  Obviously if nobody knows the old password we cannot remove it and it will remain active but can I just specify a new DMK this way?

use <database>
go
alter master key
add encryption by password = 'newpassword'
go
