Verify that creation and deletion of system level objects are logged |
Logging of creation, deletions and changes to system objects is very important to trace certain activities of malware or malicious individuals who are trying to reconfigure systems to make them more vulnerable. Section 10.3 also specifies that user ID, type of event, timestamp, status, origination and entity names have to be included with all audit records that record changes to system objects.
This Action1 query lists audit logging configuration of system object changes for every endpoint and flags incorrectly configured endpoints to indicate their non-compliance.
