Auditing security events
You can set up audit policy so that user or system activity in specified event categories is recorded. You can monitor security-related activity, such as who accesses an object, if a user logs on to or logs off from a computer, or if changes are made to an auditing policy setting.
Before defining auditing policy settings in the object access event category, see Checklist: Setting up object access auditing.
