What are all of the ways i could detect if another process is reading the memory of my process? I know that i could put hooks on all running processes to detect if they call readProcessMemory on my process. Are there other ways to detect when a process reads the memory of my process?

what is this device driver way? Is it still just a form of hooking all of the processes?

yeah sort of but not the process.. the idea is to write a kernel driver which will filter out our results for any target. its not exactly loaded into the target processes..
