All departmental employees must enter non-disclosed and regularly updated passwords to access their computers.
Why is this an effective way of protecting information. What does regularly updated passwords mean. If passwords are updated regularly then it may lead to fraud if someone sees the password being changed instead of keeping the password same for a time period
If employees obey the instruction to enter non-disclosed passwords, then someone else will not see the password being changed and not see it entered.
Insisting that passwords are changed regularly is standard practice. It helps protect against someone else ‘guessing’ the password (or using software that guesses passwords) and also helps stop the situation of someone seeing a password being entered and then keeping using it themselves to access the system. Even if that happens, the time they can use the password is limited if it is being regularly changed.
