These are our current security policies in place. We are running BES 5.0.

Password Pattern Checks - Set it so no simple pass like 1234 or qwer can be used.
Maximum Password Age - 30 Days
Maximum Security Timeout - 15 Minutes
Minimum Password Length - 6
Password Required - Yes
Maximum Password History - 4
Suppress Password Echo - Yes
Maximum Password Attempts - 8
Password Timeout - 15 Minutes

Disallow Third Party Applications Downloads - yes
Just how sensative is it?

also might want to make sure they cant forward an email to another account as well.

maybe even disbale BBM or at least set a peer to peer encryption key so only BES users to BES users can BBM.
