Hi

If you have a file server which has a folder with confidentail info, that only one group should be allowed to access

How would you maintain records of all attempts to access the folder.

I've been told you Enable Auditing of object access events on the server AND then on the folder it self you audit the Everyone group

My questions is this......I understand why you have to monitor the everyone group on the folder in question. but why do you have to enable auditing of object access events on the server. Cant you just do that on the folder itself?

Could you specify what OS for which you require Auditing.
For tracking file access you should really be looking at "Tripwire"

The file server is a 2003

you have to do both.... the audit policy to tell the server that he has to audit objects and the audit configuration in the folder to tell him what he has to audit.

But why couldn't we just put the audit policy that has been put on the server on the folder instead, as thats what we want to monitor?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

because the server audit policy is for "turning on" auditing.... then you have to configure what you want to audit. ask bill why they did it this way.... :)

So would this always be the case with auditing (i.e. always "turn it on" on the server first)

yes, that's the way to do it. first turning on auditing on objects and then tell him what to audit.
