Review the Cisco ASA configuration to verify that it is compliant with this requirement. The configuration should look similar to the example below:

logging enable
logging buffered informational

Note: The ASA will log all EXEC-mode commands that include the name of the user. The ASA also logs the name of the user entering the enable command.

If logging of administrator activity is not configured, this is a finding.
