This section of PCI requires an assessor to select a sample of users terminated in the past 6 months and verify that their local and remote access has be deactivated properly. If someone who left the company still has access to network resources, including cardholder data, the risk of malicious access increases. PCI DSS requires that all user access is revoked promptly upon employee departure.

This Action1 query lists all active and inactive user profiles that exist on endpoints and flags those that are associated with Active Directory accounts that have been inactive for more than 30 days (configurable parameter). It also lists all user profiles associated with disabled or deleted user IDs to allow you to cleanup such profiles and remove any cardholder data that might be stored in them.
