State the policy very clearly. Get them to sign that they have received and understood said policy. Policy needs to indicate that sharing credentials is grounds for immediate dismissal.

Then dismiss the first person caught violating the policy and notify the rest of the company the reason for dismissal.

Problem solved.

BUT you also must make it reasonable simple to get them access to what they need. If updated access takes two weeks and four signatures then you are working against yourself.

Hello all,

I've got a question for the group.....we are discovering instances of users on our system who are sharing passwords with each other instead of always using the ones created specifically for them. I'm thinking this is something that is most likely very common among the companies represented in the group and I was wondering how some of you have handled this situation. We'd like to somehow catch them in the act if that's possible. Has anyone endeavored to do this? All responses are most appreciated. Thanks!
