Check if someone has connected USB into your system

USB storage devices are commonly used storage devices these days. You can transmit any data by using this device. But what if someone connects it without your permission and takes away your precious data from your system. Usually in many organizations (offices, schools, etc.) it is prohibited to connect any mass storage device into the system without permission. So how will you get to know that if someone has connected one into your system or not?

The option available to you is to disable USB ports on your PC. However, it is not a good idea because you may need to connect your own USB anytime or you need USB ports to connect your Printers, Cameras etc. So now we have to find an alternative for this problem.
