This article describes what you should do with Cloud App Security daily. After you get Microsoft Cloud App Security up and running, you'll need to:
- Configure data streams

You can then use Cloud App Security to control and protect your cloud and manage risk.
Check the dashboard
The Cloud App Security dashboard provides you with an overview of activities and features, including:
- Open alerts
