This can be rather challenging task to analyze all of these events.

I would read more about a variety of event IDs related to Object access here. Article also provides examples of events, which can definitely be useful.

Example 1

Example 2

I would probably search for some third-party auditing software with a more flexible settings or you will also need some sort of log-analyzer.
