I need to trace the user log against my database tables.
Most of the tables have the customer’s sensitive data.
I need save every action (select , insert, update and delete) against those tables information with user log to AuditLog table.

For example,
If a user viewed or insert or update or delete the SocialSecurityNumber from customer table,
I need to enter the above actions with user information to AuditLog table.

Can anyone help me on this...
Thanks in advance,

You can capture DML operations (i.e. INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE) using TRIGGER. SELECT operations are a bit trickier. Are you using stored procedures for all data access? If so you can add rows to your AuditLog table whenever a proc that selects data is called. If you are not using stored procedures then you will need to use a Server-side Trace or Log Reader to capture SELECT operations since there is no trigger mechanism available from T-SQL that you can code against to respond to those.
