3.1.5 Data security

Appropriate security mechanisms have to be in place in order to allow responsible officials to designate access to data according to individual computer users' specific needs. Security mechanisms should be sufficient to implement individual authentication of system users, allow authorization to specific information and transaction authorities, maintain audit trails as specified by the responsible official, and encrypt sensitive files if required by user management.
