    This password policy from a large financial services institution with more than 5,000 employees covers standards for creation of strong passwords, the protection of those passwords, and the frequency of change.

    You are free to use or adapt this sample policy, which was contributed by the security community, for use in your own organization (but not for re-publication or for-profit use).

    Want to provide a policy or checklist? Contributions are welcome, as is expert commentary. Send your thoughts to Amy Bennett (abennett@cxo.com).
