Policy Incidents Page

The Incidents > Policy Incidents page is a central repository of all incidents that have violated Policies. All Services are consolidated on this page, or you can choose to view the violations occurring in just one Service. You can display Policy Incidents data in a Table view, or create a Chart view. It also provides easy access to filters, Saved Views, and allows you to schedule a report, and display policy details with a single click. 

To learn more about an incident, click to view Policy Incident Cloud Cards.

Sanctioned Attributes. The Policy Incidents table columns might also reflect up to 10 mapped Sanctioned Attributes from Active Directory uploaded by Enterprise Connector. When mapped, you can also search for these Attributes using the Omnibar. But note, if the mapping changes, that affects what you can see and do with these Attributes. For help mapping AD attributes, contact Skyhigh CASB Support

When Multi-Instance Support is enabled, in the main table, the Service Name column is replaced with the Instance Name column, so that you can identify one instance from another. 

NOTE: In the Response column, Archived policy violations do not appear in table results unless you explicitly filter for them in the Omnibar. 

Policy Violation to Sanctioned DLP

On the Policy Incidents Summary and Policy Incidents page, the Incident Type filter label and Omnibar value Policy Violation is changed to Sanctioned DLP. For reports, the CSV and XLXS reports are not affected, but, PDF reports reflect the new string name as PDF reports capture the screen as displayed.

Filter for Unsuccessful Deleted Remediation Status

This filter allows you to search for the Unsuccessful Deleted remediation status, to more easily find and remediate failed items in the Remediation Column.

Historical User Risk Type Filter for Sanctioned DLP Incidents

You can now filter and categorize your search by Historical User Risk Type for Low, Medium, and High-risk users in the Sanctioned DLP Policy Incidents.

Historical User Risk Score is a risk score assigned to the user whenever the incident is created and it is rated on a scale of 1–9. This score is measured based on various factors such as the severity of the violation, the user’s security posture, and metadata about the user's overall compliance history. The score identifies the deviations as High, Medium, and Low-risk types:

  • High (7-9). This score indicates a great potential for cloud services and data to become vulnerable to threats. This level is the least trustworthy. 
  • Medium (4-6). This score indicates a moderate potential for cloud services and data to become vulnerable to threats.
  • Low (1-3). This score indicates little potential for cloud services and data to become vulnerable to threats. This level is the most trustworthy.

The Historical User risk score allows you to track and manage user’s typical usage patterns related to data security, and take necessary actions to strengthen the defense against potential threats in your organization. 

To filter your Historical User Risk Type for Sanctioned DLP Incidents:

  1. On the Policy Incidents page, select the Incident Type filter as Sanctioned DLP and Historical User Risk Type as Low (1-3).

  2. Click any incident on the table to open the cloud card and view the Historical User Risk score of the user and activities details. To view the Historical User Risk Score, see the Policy Incidents cloud card.

Download Evidence Files for Sanctioned DLP Incidents

You can now download evidence files that are linked to Sanctioned DLP incidents individually on the Policy Incidents page. 

DLP Evidence is a copy of the compromised content that violates a Sanctioned Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy detected during the policy evaluation. The downloaded evidence files enables you to view the details of the violated DLP incidents and perform additional forensics on the generated incidents. 

You can apply Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) to control the download of evidence files for Sanctioned DLP incidents. For details, see Download Sanctioned DLP Evidence.

To download evidence files for Sanctioned DLP Incidents:

  1. On the Policy Incidents page, select the Incident Type filter as Sanctioned DLP.
  2. Click the link in the Item Name column corresponding to an incident to download the evidence file.
