Based on your preferences, you can create workflow using SharePoint Designer(easily created using UI) or you can use Event Receivers, but this approach requires full trust solution which may be too big in simple scenarios.

You can create such a workflow via SharePoint Designer -> Lists and Libraries -> Your List -> List Workflow
