From the High Risk Employees list, you can quickly detect and respond to insider risks, helping you to:
- Be alerted when suspicious file activity occurs from high-risk employees
- Watch the file activity of employees with known risk factors
- Review an employee's file activity from the previous 90 days
This article describes the information and options in the High Risk Employees list.
For instructions about how to add users to the High Risk Employees list and investigate suspicious file activity, see Add high risk employees.
Add Trusted Domains in Data Preferences to hide file events that occur on domains you trust. Adding trusted domains helps focus your investigation on file activity that may be a higher risk. File activity on a specific domain is only considered trusted starting the date the domain was added. You can view all file activity, including events that occur on your trusted domains, in Forensic Search.
- To use the High Risk Employees list, you must have roles that provide the necessary permissions. We recommend you use the roles in our use case for adding users to detection lists.
File events for Forensic Search and Alerts typically appear within 15 minutes of the file activity, while file events in the Risk Exposure dashboard and the User Profile may take up to an hour to appear. As a result, you may see that the file event counts in alert notifications and Forensic Search differ from the event counts in the Risk Exposure dashboard and the Departing Employees and High Risk Employees User Profiles.
High Risk Employees
To open the High Risk Employees list:
- Sign in to the Code42 console.
The Risk Exposure dashboard opens.
- Click the High Risk Employees tile on the Risk Exposure dashboard, or go to User Activity > High Risk Employees.
High Risk Employees list
The High Risk Employees screen lists the users whose activity shows a high risk of file exfiltration or loss to your organization.
Click to open the Alert Settings window, from which you can:
|b||Add high risk employee||Click to add a new user to the list of high-risk employees and start reviewing their file activity.|
|c||Total high risk employees||Click to see a list of all high-risk employees. This option is selected by default.|
|d||Put data at risk in last 24 hours||Click to see the employees that had suspicious file activity in the past 24 hours.|
|e||Put data at risk in the last 30 days||Click to see the employees that had suspicious file activity in the past 30 days.|
Displays the employee's name and Code42 username. Click their Code42 username to see their User Profile.
Displays the employee's department and their title if you use provisioning. (If you use Code42 User Directory Sync or SCIM provisioning, this information is automatically populated by your provisioning provider. You must first add the department and title attributes if you use Okta provisioning or PingOne provisioning.) If you don't use provisioning, this information does not appear and cannot be added manually.
|h||Events||Displays the number of file events in which a file was
moved to removable media or cloud sync folders, read by a browser or other app, or shared publicly via direct link or with specific users outside your trusted domains.
|i||Size||Lists the total size of the files included In the file event activity.|
Attributes that were added to the employee's profile:
|k||User profile notes||Displays any additional notes entered when the profile was created. If no notes were added, this field is blank.|
Select one or more risk factors to filter the list of employees.
|m||View profile||Opens the User Profile page for the employee.|
|n||Remove employee||Removes the employee's profile from the High Risk Employees list. This removes the profile for all other members on your team as well.|
|o||View event details||Click to view the employee's file events broken down by destination and file category group.|
To view an employee's user profile, click View profile in the list of employees.
|a||High Risk Employee indicator||
Shows that this employee has been added to the High Risk Employees list. Click to jump to the High Risk Employees list.
Click the "x" on the indicator to remove the employee from the High Risk Employees list. This will remove the employee from High Risk Employees list for your team members as well.
Displays a summary of the employee's information, including:
*Displays this information if your Code42 environment uses provisioning. (If you use Code42 User Directory Sync or SCIM provisioning, this information is automatically populated by your provisioning provider. If you use Azure AD provisioning, the attributes are automatically populated. You must first add the attributes if you use Okta provisioning or PingOne provisioning. ) If you don't use provisioning, this information does not appear and cannot be added manually. If user attributes are not populated correctly, see Updated user attributes not populating in risk detection lists.
|c||Profile details||Information such as risk factors, departure date, or profile notes that was added to the employee's profile from the Departing Employees list or High Risk Employees list.|
|d||Edit||Click to edit employee information, including cloud aliases, applied risk factors, and User profile notes.|
Destination activity over time
Destinations are dynamic
The list of destinations shown on each tab of this graph is dynamic. Only destinations with file activity are shown.
For example, if there is no Box file activity in the selected timeframe, or if you have not given Code42 access to your Box environment for monitoring, the Box destination is not listed.
|a||Timeframe||Displays file activity for the last 90 days, 30 days, 7 days, or 1 day.|
Shows all endpoint and cloud service activity across your organization. (To see cloud service activity, give Code42 access to your cloud services.)
File events include files:
Shows all remote file activity that occurred on an endpoint. File events can include files moved to removable media or cloud sync folders, or viewed in a browser or other app.
When configured, remote activity is detected for endpoint events from out-of-network IP addresses. The Remote activity tab does not show cloud sharing events.
|d||Destination||Displays the currently selected destination.|
Select a destination to see where the file was sent. Destinations include:
|f||Events||Number of file events associated with the destination for the selected timeframe.|
|g||Events bar graph||Shows a visual representation of the number of file events.|
|h||Size||Total size of files involved with the file activity.|
|i||Activity preview||Shows a visual representation of file activity for the selected timeframe.|
Highlights file activity that has added risk. For more information about insider risk indicators, see Introduction to risk indicators .
File Mismatch - Indicates that the files involved with the file activity have extensions that do not match the file contents. For example, a file with the .jpg extension that is actually a .zip file.
Off hours - Indicates file activity that occurred outside the employee’s typical active hours. With File Metadata Collection enabled, Code42 captures file activity from an employee’s endpoint and uses that pattern of activity to highlight file activity that occurs during times a user is typically inactive (their off hours).
Off Hours requires File Metadata Collection
You must have File Metadata Collection enabled in order to see the Off Hours indicator.
Off Hours appears only for endpoint activity
While the File Mismatch indicator is shown for both the endpoint and cloud sharing file activity, the Off Hours indicator only appears on endpoint events. Cloud services are not currently monitored for activity that occurs during off hours.
|k||Forensic Search||Opens Forensic Search and pre-populates it with the selected timeframe and exposure type. Learn more about using Forensic Search.|
|l||View event details||Click to view the file events broken down by file category group.|
