Attackers use privileged accounts to bypass controls, cover the tracks of an attack, improperly access confidential data, install malware, and make changes that impact system and data security. Proper auditing of privileged account use can help uncover inappropriate privileged account use, and can also provide part of the check-and-balances required for compliance with IT security standards like PCI and HIPAA.
