Restrict the Admins that can change the password of a particular user account

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
We have one "Master" Admin (default "Administrator" account) and some regular Admins in our company. We have classified information which is only accessible though particular user accounts. But as Admins generally have the permission to change the password they could access this data by changing the passwords. Is it possible to restrict the "normal" admins to not be able to change the password of particular accounts?
