I would like to know the best way to monitor all outgoing information / data on my computer. I have recently set up a small office and need to assure myself that my data is safe. I need to ensure that my employees are not (1) using a data usb stick to take information nor (2) using private email (e.g. gmail) or 'wetransfer' or something similar to send information to their private accounts. Is this possible ?

    Check here for Group Policy Removable Media for usbs,cds and other removable storage you can deny writing or reading as well as other things. For ensuring the other issue. Using a water mark in emails as well as documents helps insure it wont be copied or sent to themselves. You could setup a rule to cc another email you use. To make sure no emails are being forwarded to private addresses. Hope this helps. – NetworkKingPin Apr 15 '16 at 5:22

    Applications such as Symantec DLP for endpoint protection. And services like WebSense for monitoring web traffic. – jezr74 Apr 15 '16 at 5:32
