3.1 ACCESS CONTROL
Prevent non-privileged users from executing privileged functions and capture the execution of such functions in audit logs.
Privileged functions include establishing system accounts performing system integrity checks conducting patching operations or administering cryptographic key management activities. Non-privileged users are individuals that do not possess appropriate authorizations. Circumventing intrusion detection and prevention mechanisms or malicious code protection mechanisms are examples of privileged functions that require protection from non-privileged users. Note that this requirement represents a condition to be achieved by the definition of authorized privileges in 3.1.2. Misuse of privileged functions either intentionally or unintentionally by authorized users or by unauthorized external entities that have compromised system accounts is a serious and ongoing concern and can have significant adverse impacts on organizations. Logging the use of privileged functions is one way to detect such misuse and in doing so help mitigate the risk from insider threats and the advanced persistent threat.
What is a Cybersecurity Compliance Framework?
You don’t need to clutter your security and privacy programs with an ever-increasing number of tools as they become more sophisticated. The Lionfish platform offers a one-stop solution to track progress and monitor any framework, from custom-built ones to highly-specialized and in-demand top security and privacy frameworks and certifications.
With the Lionfish platform, every framework is supported with guided scoping, policies, controls, automated evidence collection, and continuous monitoring, ensuring efficient preparation for audits or attestation in minimal time.
The Lionfish platform is compatible with a wide range of security and privacy frameworks, including:
- CMMC v2
- NERC CIP-002 through CIP-014 Revision 6
- NIST 800-171
- NIST 800-172
- PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)
- SOC 2
- NIST 800-53
- NIST SP800-161 Supply Chain Risk Management
- CIS Framework Controls V8
