Keeping Passwords / PIN Numbers Confidential

This topic is concerned with the responsibilities of staff with regard to all forms of access passwords - including PIN numbers.

  • Information may be disclosed without authorisation, because passwords have been compromised or not kept confidential.

  • Ensure that the confidentiality of a password is respected and never revealed to anyone.

    N.B. This includes all technical staff. If access is required, the System Administrator may receive authorisation and legitimately access anyone's account. However, such action should be captured on the system logs for subsequent auditing.
  • Ensure that the choice of password and the subsequent use is tightly controlled. See Passwords - Choosing and Passwords - Use and Best Practice.
  • Be wary of requests from someone who asks for your password claiming to have received authorisation. Refer all such requests to your Security Officer.
