Set alerts for user accounts

Background / Value

The AD Logga allows you to monitor the process of resetting passwords. Within this process there is an inherent security risk. For example, if a helpdesk employee secretly resets the password of a manager or executive, they can sign on with a temporary password and gain access to sensitive information. In this scenario the designated users are informed.
