• Requirement

    Disable accounts within [Assignment: organization-defined time period] when the accounts:

    1. Have expired;
    2. Are no longer associated with a user or individual;
    3. Are in violation of organizational policy; or
    4. Have been inactive for [Assignment: organization-defined time period].
  • Discussion

    Disabling expired, inactive, or otherwise anomalous accounts supports the concepts of least privilege and least functionality which reduce the attack surface of the system.
