Privileged accounts are those with special permissions on a system, application, database or any other asset that can be used to perform any administration activity (E.g. changing the configuration), or have full access to the data. Failing to manage and monitor the usage of the privilege accounts in a corporate environment or an organization could have serious consequences.
