Security Breaches

Password and Access Sharing

Password or access sharing is prohibited, no matter what the circumstance (training included). It is against the law. (Texas Penal Code, Chapter 33, Title 7)

Sharing your access or password is like giving away your signature. In any instance where access or password sharing occurs, FAMIS Security will take immediate disciplinary action. If you let someone use your access, but you do not tell them your password, then you are still violating security. FAMIS records any changes made using your access under your UserID, so it is very easy for anyone to locate FAMIS entries tied to you for which you will be held responsible.
