Measure: PasswordSecurity


Access to sensitive and critical cyber applications, databases, control tools or similar should be protected by secure passwords. Thus only authorized people get access to the respective cyber space. The aim is to prevent attacker's access by hacking and to ensure the cyber system's integrity.


For the access to any application, database or similar a different password has to be used. Passwords should not be too short (at least 8 symbols) and contain symbols of different kinds (e.g. capital and small letters, special symbols, numbers). Passwords should be changed regularly.
