Password Policy

Passwords are an important aspect of computer security. A poorly chosen password may result in unauthorized access and/or exploitation of CodeBee.'s resources. All users, including contractors and vendors with access to CodeBee. systems, are responsible for taking the appropriate steps, as outlined below, to select and secure their passwords.


The purpose of this policy is to establish a standard for creation of strong passwords and the protection of those passwords.


This policy covers appropriate use of any email sent from a CodeBee email address and applies to all employees, vendors, and agents operating on behalf of CodeBee.


Password Protection

  • Passwords must not be shared with anyone. All passwords are to be treated as sensitive, Confidential CodeBee. information.
  • Do not write passwords down and store them anywhere in your office.
  • When passwords are stored in a file on a computer system or mobile devices (phone, tablet) it must have an AES 256 bits encryption or better.
  • The "Remember Password" feature of applications (for example, web browsers) must be protected with a master password. The application must encrypt the stored passwords.
  • Any user suspecting that his/her password may have been compromised must report the incident and change all passwords.

Password Creation
