Verify all actions taken with administrative privileges are logged |
Accounts with administrative privileges pose a much greater risk than regular accounts and this why PCI DSS requires all administrative actions to be logged and reviewed on a regular basis. Section 10.3 also specifies that user ID, type of event, timestamp, status, origination and entity names must be included with administrative activity audit log records.
This Action1 query lists the status of audit configuration settings for all managed endpoints and flags those that don’t have auditing enabled for administrative logons and other actions that require administrative privileges.
