SB010 Does not share passwords

Password sharing increases the likelihood of an account being compromised. Passwords should not be shared. Any passwords that have previously been shared should be changed.

Why is it important?

Password sharing is always dangerous. Even when sharing a password with someone known and trusted. A range of outcomes can occur from doing so, whether intentional or not. These can have detrimental effects to the organisation or person.
