Walkthrough - From an insight to a detailed report

If you're new to reports and insights in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center, it might help to see how you can easily navigate from an insight to a detailed report.

This is one of several walkthroughs for the Security & Compliance Center. To see additional walkthroughs, see the Related topics section.

From an insight to a detailed report

Let's walk through the flow from the dashboard to an insight to a detailed report for data exploration. (This is a brief data loss prevention example.)

  1. We begin with a dashboard in the Security & Compliance Center. (Go to Reports > Dashboard.)
    In the Security & Compliance Center, choose Reports > Dashboard

  2. In the upper left corner of the dashboard, next to Top insights & recommendations, we have a link. (Click View all.)
    In the Security & Compliance Center, choose Reports > Dashboard to see your top insights
    This takes us to a list of insights for our organization.
    In the Security & Compliance Center, you can view all insights in a list

  3. Selecting an item in the list opens a pane where we can view more details about that item. (Click an item.)
    Details for a selected insight
    We see recommended actions we should consider, such as reviewing policies. (Learn more about data loss prevention policies.)

  4. We also have a link to view more details. (Click See related activity in Explorer.)
    This takes us to a report type called Explorer (also referred to as Threat explorer), where we can apply filters and drill into specific details.

In this way, we can move easily from an insight into its underlying details, and make more informed decisions about data loss prevention for an organization.
