The use of computers have become very much essential in the work place, no matter what is the business of the organization or what exactly the organization is dealing with. Thus, with the increased use of the computers, it becomes essential to protect the data and secure the same from any of the looming harms in the form of the user or the employees of a particular organization. Hence each and every event or action of the user or the employee must be recorded and if found guilty, then necessary action must be taken and stringent policies must be followed well in advance. When one talks about event monitoring , it is not just keeping a tab on the employees and following the actions of the user but the overall system as a whole in terms of the operating system and other related systems must be taken care of and well protected and secured in whatever manner possible.
In an organization, the technical department as well as the top brass needs to shoulder this responsibility and follow it with great care and precision. This will definitely and surely help in maintaining the trust from both the ends and make the system more transparent in order to look after such activities by the user or the employees of any organization. In a way, it becomes open who is doing what and spending what percentage of the time on the work related applications rather than the personal stuff or surfing the net for his/her own use. It is quite helpful and beneficial to the organization as well as the employees as it will help them to achieve the goals thus reaching to the organizational goals in common.
In the present times, confidential or secret information is being passed to many of the employees within the organization due to the work profile or the need of the hour. They can access and make use of the same in a positive as well as negative manner, thus affecting the organization as a whole and bringing it down in front of the clients concerned. Sensitive data must be protected and well guarded within an organization and misuse of the same must be avoided at all costs for any of the reasons at all points of time.
Necessary measures must be taken with regards to the same and it must be made a regular practice for the smooth functioning of the business. These measures must be cost effective and within the reach of the organization. They should not pinch a big hole in the pockets of the entrepreneurs or the top authorities of the organization, thus affecting the overall budget of the business and hampering the same in some or the other form.
To sum it up, one can say that event monitoring is as much essential as the user activity monitoring and thus must not be taken for granted for any of the reasons for the overall success and development of the organization as a whole. Each and every organization must follow stringent procedures related to the same without a saying or any kinds of second thoughts.
