Control Statement

Vendor-supplied default passwords are changed according to GitLab standards prior to device installation on the GitLab network or immediately after software or operating system installation.

Scope

This control applies to all hosted systems (e.g. VM's and GCP compute services) as well as end user workstations (e.g. GitLab team-members' MacBooks) and all third-party applications utilized by GitLab.

Ownership

TBD
