in the group policy which is applied to the whole organization the audit object access under: Policies\Windows Setting\Security Setting\Local Policies/Audit policy is enabled for both success and failure. Is this enough to obtain all logs for all files and folders.
I have noticed that in folder properties, if we choose security -> advanced ->auditing we can choose users from AD that we want to monitor. Does this mean that we have to choose the users for all files and folders? Or is the group policy is enough?

Enabling the group policy settings that you describe allows the events to be generated. You still have to configure which files that you want to monitor and for what users. You could select auditing on the main drive for the user "Everyone" to accomplish what you are asking. This is not advised since this will generate an ENORMOUS amount of events. File access auditing works well in targeted scenarios.
