The Cisco switch must be configured to generate log records when administrator privileges are modified.
Without generating audit records that are specific to the security and mission needs of the organization, it would be difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events relating to an incident or identify those responsible for one.
Audit records can be generated from various components within the network device (e.g., module or policy filter).
Note: The logging userinfo command will log when the administrator increases his or her privilege level while the log config command will log all configuration changes such as changing privilege levels for certain commands.
If the Cisco switch is not configured to generate log records when administrator privileges are modified, this is a finding.
