Policy Incidents Summary

The Policy Incidents Summary page provides a unified summary to view information on all DLP and Security Configuration Audit policy incidents. This allows you to review the effectiveness of individual policies and fine-tune evaluation accuracy for DLP and Configuration Audit policies against the number of incidents generated and remediation actions.

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 view the page, go to Incident> Policy Incidents Summary

Data Retention Update 

The MVISION Cloud default data retention period has changed from 90 days to 100 days. Beginning with MVISION Cloud 5.0.2, the data retention policy (100 days or 12 months, if you purchased the 12-month data retention plan) is applied for the incidents displayed on the Policy Incidents summary and page. As a result, you may see fewer incidents displayed on the Policy Incidents pages compared to previous versions. Policy Incident retention policy is applied using the incident modified date.

Policy Incident Columns

You can configure the columns in the Policy Incident Summary page to make sure you're seeing the data that is most important to you. The following table columns are available:

NOTE: The maximum limit for the archived incident in the dashboard is 100,000.

  • Archived. The number of archived incidents.
  • Services. Displays the names of the cloud service providers that the policy is enforced against.
  • Auto Remediations. The count of automated response actions that were executed when creating the incident. This may not be equal to the total number of incidents. If a policy is explicitly configured to have multiple response actions (like Delete and User Email Notification), both response actions are counted as automated remediations. (For policies configured to have a single response, this count is equal to the total number of incidents.)
  • Deployment Method. Displays the type of deployment (API, Config Audit, or Proxy) of the CSP that was in use when the policy was triggered.
  • False Positives. The number of incidents that are false positives.
  • Manual Remediations. The count of manual remediation actions performed for all the incidents associated with the policy.
  • New. The number of new incidents.
  • Notifications. The number of notifications sent for the incident.
  • Open. Total number of Open (or unresolved) incidents.
  • Name. Name of the policy.
  • Status. Shows if a policy is Active (turned on) or Disabled (turned off).
  • Resolved. Count of all resolved incidents for the policy.
  • Suppressed. The number of suppressed incidents. 
  • Total Incidents. The total number of incidents triggered (created) by the policy.
  • Total Unresolved. The total number of unresolved incidents.
