Determine if CounterACT restricts the ability to change the auditing to be performed within the system log based on selectable event criteria to the audit administrator's role or to other roles or individuals.

This requirement may be verified by configuration review or demonstration.

1. Open the CounterACT Administrator Console and log on with admin or operator credentials.
2. Select Tools >> Options >> Console User Profiles.
3. Select (highlight) the user profile to be reviewed (group or user) and then select "Edit".
