Privileged accounts like System Administrators and Network Administrators have elevated privileges in a system. Capabilities such as unlimited access, bypassing the audit function etc are part of these accounts. This would give an administrator supreme power in a system.
Managing the privilege accounts are important for an organization. We all trust our people, but the regulations of today need every organization to keep records of activities performed, even by the administrators.
