Current legislation demands organizations to responsibly manage sensitive data. To achieve compliance, data auditing must be implemented in information systems. In this paper we propose a data auditing architecture that creates data audit reports out of simple audit events at the technical level. We use complex event processing (CEP) technology to obtain composed audit events out of simple audit events. In two scenarios we show how complex audit events can be built for business processes and application users, when one database user is shared between many application users, as found in multi-tier architectures.
