Azure_Security_Benchmark_v2.0 PA-3 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v2.0_PA-3 Azure Security Benchmark PA-3 Privileged Access Review and reconcile user access regularly Customer Review user accounts and access assignment regularly to ensure the accounts and their level of access are valid. You can use Azure AD access reviews to review group memberships, access to enterprise applications, and role assignments. Azure AD reporting can provide logs to help discover stale accounts. You can also use Azure AD Privileged Identity Management to create an access review report workflow that facilitates the review process. In addition, Azure Privileged Identity Management can be configured to alert when an excessive number of administrator accounts are created, and to identify administrator accounts that are stale or improperly configured. Note: Some Azure services support local users and roles that aren't managed through Azure AD. You must manage these users separately.

Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 PA-4 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_PA-4 Azure Security Benchmark PA-4 Privileged Access Review and reconcile user access regularly Shared **Security Principle:** Conduct regular review of privileged account entitlements. Ensure the access granted to the accounts are valid for administration of control plane, management plane, and workloads. **Azure Guidance:** Review all privileged accounts and the access entitlements in Azure including such as Azure tenant, Azure services, VM/IaaS, CI/CD processes, and enterprise management and security tools. Use Azure AD access reviews to review Azure AD roles and Azure resource access roles, group memberships, access to enterprise applications. Azure AD reporting can also provide logs to help discover stale accounts, accounts not being used for certain amount of time. In addition, Azure AD Privileged Identity Management can be configured to alert when an excessive number of administrator accounts are created for a specific role, and to identify administrator accounts that are stale or improperly configured. **Implementation and additional context:** Create an access review of Azure resource roles in Privileged Identity Management (PIM): https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/privileged-identity-management/pim-resource-roles-start-access-review How to use Azure AD identity and access reviews: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/governance/access-reviews-overview n/a link 10

CMMC_L3 AC.1.001 CMMC_L3_AC.1.001 CMMC L3 AC.1.001 Access Control Limit information system access to authorized users, processes acting on behalf of authorized users, and devices (including other information systems). Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Access control policies (e.g., identity- or role-based policies, control matrices, and cryptography) control access between active entities or subjects (i.e., users or processes acting on behalf of users) and passive entities or objects (e.g., devices, files, records, and domains) in systems. Access enforcement mechanisms can be employed at the application and service level to provide increased information security. Other systems include systems internal and external to the organization. This requirement focuses on account management for systems and applications. The definition of and enforcement of access authorizations, other than those determined by account type (e.g., privileged verses non-privileged) are addressed in requirement AC.1.002. link 32
CMMC_L3 AC.2.007 CMMC_L3_AC.2.007 CMMC L3 AC.2.007 Access Control Employ the principle of least privilege, including for specific security functions and privileged accounts. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Organizations employ the principle of least privilege for specific duties and authorized accesses for users and processes. The principle of least privilege is applied with the goal of authorized privileges no higher than necessary to accomplish required organizational missions or business functions. Organizations consider the creation of additional processes, roles, and system accounts as necessary, to achieve least privilege. Organizations also apply least privilege to the development, implementation, and operation of organizational systems. Security functions include establishing system accounts, setting events to be logged, setting intrusion detection parameters, and configuring access authorizations (i.e., permissions, privileges). Privileged accounts, including super user accounts, are typically described as system administrator for various types of commercial off-the-shelf operating systems. Restricting privileged accounts to specific personnel or roles prevents day-to-day users from having access to privileged information or functions. Organizations may differentiate in the application of this requirement between allowed privileges for local accounts and for domain accounts provided organizations retain the ability to control system configurations for key security parameters and as otherwise necessary to sufficiently mitigate risk. link 4
FedRAMP_High_R4 AC-2 FedRAMP_High_R4_AC-2 FedRAMP High AC-2 Access Control Account Management Shared n/a The organization: a. Identifies and selects the following types of information system accounts to support organizational missions/business functions: [Assignment: organization-defined information system account types]; b. Assigns account managers for information system accounts; c. Establishes conditions for group and role membership; d. Specifies authorized users of the information system, group and role membership, and access authorizations (i.e., privileges) and other attributes (as required) for each account; e. Requires approvals by [Assignment: organization-defined personnel or roles] for requests to create information system accounts; f. Creates, enables, modifies, disables, and removes information system accounts in accordance with [Assignment: organization-defined procedures or conditions]; g. Monitors the use of, information system accounts; h. Notifies account managers: 1. When accounts are no longer required; 2. When users are terminated or transferred; and 3. When individual information system usage or need-to-know changes; i. Authorizes access to the information system based on: 1. A valid access authorization; 2. Intended system usage; and 3. Other attributes as required by the organization or associated missions/business functions; j. Reviews accounts for compliance with account management requirements [Assignment: organization-defined frequency]; and k. Establishes a process for reissuing shared/group account credentials (if deployed) when individuals are removed from the group. Supplemental Guidance: Information system account types include individual, shared, group, system, guest/anonymous, emergency, developer/manufacturer/vendor, temporary, and service. Some of the account management requirements listed above can be implemented by organizational information systems. The identification of authorized users of the information system and the specification of access privileges reflects the requirements in other security controls in the security plan. Users requiring administrative privileges on information system accounts receive additional scrutiny by appropriate organizational personnel (e.g., system owner, mission/business owner, or chief information security officer) responsible for approving such accounts and privileged access. Organizations may choose to define access privileges or other attributes by account, by type of account, or a combination of both. Other attributes required for authorizing access include, for example, restrictions on time-of-day, day-of-week, and point-of-origin. In defining other account attributes, organizations consider system-related requirements (e.g., scheduled maintenance, system upgrades) and mission/business requirements, (e.g., time zone differences, customer requirements, remote access to support travel requirements). Failure to consider these factors could affect information system availability. Temporary and emergency accounts are accounts intended for short-term use. Organizations establish temporary accounts as a part of normal account activation procedures when there is a need for short-term accounts without the demand for immediacy in account activation. Organizations establish emergency accounts in response to crisis situations and with the need for rapid account activation. Therefore, emergency account activation may bypass normal account authorization processes. Emergency and temporary accounts are not to be confused with infrequently used accounts (e.g., local logon accounts used for special tasks defined by organizations or when network resources are unavailable). Such accounts remain available and are not subject to automatic disabling or removal dates. Conditions for disabling or deactivating accounts include, for example: (i) when shared/group, emergency, or temporary accounts are no longer required; or (ii) when individuals are transferred or terminated. Some types of information system accounts may require specialized training.
