PIN messages are either "scrambled" with a common encryption key (default) or "encrypted" using a corporate key so internal PIN messages are secure.

PIN encryption keys - Security Technical Overview - BlackBerry Enterprise Server - 5.0.2

All BlackBerry smartphones hooked up to a 5.x BES can have all PIN and SMS messages read by a BES Admin if configured to do so.
