Microsoft introduced an Interactive logon message for users attempting to log on that displays a warning message before logon may help prevent an attack by warning the attacker about the consequences of their misconduct before it happens.

Interactive logon messages may also help to reinforce corporate policy by notifying employees of the appropriate policy during the logon process. This text is often used for legal reasons—for example, to warn users about the ramifications of misusing company information or to warn them that their actions may be audited.
