• (SQL 2012)  

This group tracks the backup and restore of databases and transaction logs. This group is important to enable so that you have an audit trail of database backups which could be used to steal entire copies of a confidential database. And of course an inappropriate restore of a database could have disastrous effects.

If you enable this group on the server it will track backup and restore operations on all database and send transaction logs. To only track such operations on one database enable this group in a database audit specification on that database.
