Sections 43 & 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000
Having 13 passwords at work is good practice from a security point of view, but the people who implement these things tend to be strange people who are neither like nor quite understand normal human beings.
Ultimately, you need to balance security with employing normal members of the public who are doing normal office jobs. All these weirdos do is breed contempt for employers and cause stress to normal human beings.
You don't need to protect your own IT systems from your regular employees (unless your HR department and security staff on the door have failed to do *their* jobs already), only spies and rogue employees, who'll still find a way around 13 passwords to do bad deeds.
Sadly, I've met too many of these obsessive IT systems admins or people with some kind of say over how IT works in an organisation, and they're generally highly paranoid individuals who think every other college is either corrupt, incompetent, an arsehole, part of a clique, clueless, or use some other trick to hoodwink everyone else into employing them. They see themselves as the only person in the whole company who does their job well and takes things seriously, the irony being that they're almost always clueless themselves or take weeks to do what normal IT staff do in an hour.
Like I said, it would be great for security if everyone had to remember 50 passwords and change them all every day, but what kind of life would that be for a human being?
If you want to roll out IT systems that have inherent flaws that need 13 passwords to fix, you need to fix the IT system, not the humans. It's like Black & Decker expecting their customers to be genetically altered so that their hands better fit the designs of their tools, rather than redesigning their tools to for human hands.
All of which makes me think that one day babies really will be microchipped so that computers can detect who's using them and work out whether that person should/can be where they appear to be...
It'll be like Terminator, but without Skynet.
