Every organization has trusted users with privileged access, which gives them the ability to make system-wide changes and view sensitive information. These users are also often the targets of malicious actors, as stolen privileged user credentials enable hackers to skip the steps of bypassing firewalls and other security systems. Privileged user management can prevent trusted users from acquiring and accumulating permissions that don't line up with their role and promote the security principle of least privilege.

Now that you have brushed up on privileged user management, take this quiz to test your knowledge retention on the subject and the related challenges.
