As for personnel that deal with sensitive and classified information or those endowed with the system administrative rights due to job demand, labor and responsibility should be distributed appropriately.

Depending on different levels of personnel as well as real circumstances, information security training and propaganda are conducted to ensure staff’s full understanding of the significance of information security and various possible risks, in order to improve their information security awareness and observance of relevant regulations.

4. The operating procedures for handling information security incidents are established and related personnel are assigned necessary responsibilities in order to ensure prompt and effective dealing with information security incidents.
