I work for computer security audit company. We are often asked to check a companies computer security. We act basing a major document called security policy.

Our department continuously evaluate difference file auditing solutions. We have recently faced with the problem of managing sensitive files of company in a right way.

Company wants to keep an eye on it's sensitive files and how they are being used. At the same time it was necessary to monitor all file related activity occasionally, without installing background monitoring.

This was the right approach to security as people must feel that company trust them and on the other hand company must sometime control if all employees understand in what way security information must be kept and used.

We started looking for some software based solutions about two month ago. We found the Show Hidden Files security utility. The fully-functional evaluation version was available for download.

After using Show Hidden Files in action we conclude that it's a good way to do unobtrusive audit of user's password protected files' related activity.

Recommending Show Hidden Files to our clients we solve two problems:
1) Company security department know if password protected files are being used in a right way.
2) Employees feel safe as no one spy on them

The main ideas is that people understand that IT security uses Find Protected as a checking utility that answers the question if files are kept securely and it the right way.

"out of 700 workers surveyed, 21% - 31% admitted to keeping and sending company confidential information"

I've found this is one of the PC Weeks issues, also I found that some CEO posted this info in your Testimonials section.

I think it's a big problem I should consider right now, I wonder what should I do to apply the security policy in my company. I need some points to start.
