Re: that 7%?
By audit logs, does that mean they collect the keystrokes of individuals who are authorized to use the system? If that's the case, if someone made an inappropriate access, couldn't they prove it by looking at the audit logs? And, if so, why not mandate that the other 7% are required to use a similar check, too?

that 7%?
