Overview

The Risk Exposure dashboard shows file activity from throughout your entire environment to help you catch data exposure or loss as soon as possible. This article gives examples of what you can do to investigate unusual activity that may appear in this dashboard. 

Use the Risk Exposure dashboard to see when: 

  • High risk or departing employees are putting data at risk
  • Any employee in your org is moving a lot of files
  • File activity occurs on out-of-network IP addresses
  • Files are added to unsanctioned cloud services
  • Files are made publicly available on a cloud service
  • Files are copied to removable media or read by a browser or other app

Considerations

Differences in file event counts
File events for Forensic Search and Alerts 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.

Example use cases 

From the Risk Exposure dashboard, you can quickly assess how many file events are happening from your departing and high risk employees as well as across your entire organization.
