Failure to correctly mark switch positions and cable connections can lead to the A/B switch connecting the wrong device to the wrong system for the current intended use. This can lead to a denial of access to a peripheral by an IS or the access of the wrong peripheral by an IS compromising sensitive data. The ISSO or SA will ensure the A/B switch, cables, switch positions, and connectors are labeled in accordance with this STIG.
