IT Account and Access Exception Form

An IT Account and Access exception can only be granted after a security review and with applicable functional area director approval. Exceptions will only be granted in cases where there is a well justified need and business case for not adhering to IT Security Procedures.

Mitigating controls will be required in any case were an exception to this procedure is granted. These controls must be approved by the Office of Information Security and documented in this form.

Exceptions are granted for a maximum of 12 months but can be granted for intervals shorter than 12 months. Upon expiration of an exception a review will be conducted with the requester and the validity of the exception examined. If the exception is still deemed necessary and prudent the requester must submit a new exception form for the new time period.

Passwords for the account must be changed at the expiration of any given exception.
