Refraining from discussing sensitive work topics in public

Sensitive topics should not be discussed in shared spaces. This includes public spaces and workspaces frequented by people with mixed levels of authority/responsibility.

Why is it important?

Discussing sensitive work related topics in public is dangerous. It's an opportunity for anyone nearby to hear sensitive information. This can lead to unexpected attacks against an organisation or a data breach.
