Our management team would like to be emailed or alerted whenever security rights are changed on a certain directory.  Is there any way to accomplish this?  This is a Windows 2003 domain.

you need to enable object auditing in the domain GPO as well as enableing auditing on the folders themselves, be warned this will fill up your event logs.....
