Nice paper here from SANS on setting up database logging and monitoring:

http://www.sans.org/reading-room/whitepapers/application/setting-database-security-logging-monitoring-program-34222

Surprised that the percentage using tools to track insiders isn't close to 100 in this and every other study with all the products that are out there.

Re: Privileged means bad
Absolutely. Even if these privileged insiders had no intention of sharing the information or leaking it, if they get targeted, then their credentials can be abused by the bad guys, etc.

Re: Privileged means bad
It can be misunderstood as curiosity but in real senses it poses a danger to an organization. Think of an external party getting advantage of the 'privileged few' curiosity escapades and they get to access important and sensitive information about the organization. Things concerning their clients' personal details, their financial dealings, plan for the organization. This can pose as a threat since competitors' will bank on the information and use it to their advantage.
