What is your solution to have a secure way to monitor all privileged users?
 
In our company, only those seen as responsible can be trusted with “root” privileges like the ability to change system configurations, install software, change user accounts or access secure data. But from a security perspective, it never makes sense to unconditionally trust anyone. That’s why we still want to control and monitor even the trusted access. Can you share what your solution is to have a secure, streamlined way to authorize and monitor all privileged users for all relevant systems?

Privilege management might be the answer to what you need to take a system’s overall risk. It can provide visibility and control over all privileged accounts and users.

I agree with Tonisha. With privileged user access, you can monitor all type of users. You need to follow principle of least privilege for new users and you need to identify privileged accounts. You also need to add password security and access security to your system.

You will need to assign the required privileges to users as per your need. When you will assign only required privileges that time you won't need to worry about the security and other aspect.

Make sure, root privilege should not be given to all users due to security aspect.
