USB tracking
We have a domain policy that forces BitLocker to be used before saving data to any usb drive, otherwise its will be read only. I guess my questions is, how do you track or monitor usb activity on our 1500 end clients?

Thanks

Re: USB tracking
Last year, my wife - daughter and 3 year old grand-daughter, Cariana, visited my office.  She had pizza in the cafeteria, met my colleagues and WHEN LEAVING ..... Cariana pulled all of our security badges, save mine, and said THESE MUST BE RETURNED.   She then walked them to the security desk to hand them in.  Staff there was delighted!!!   Lesson - A THREE YEAR OLD understood perimeter security BETTER than most employees do.

Re: USB tracking
We track files being written and read on USB drives through an agent connected to our SIEM server (we use Solarwinds LEM, but there are others as well.) We can also monitor machines that have restricted USB access.
