Microsoft 365 compliance center: Insider risk management – Native triggers (New signals, indicator selection, customization, Activity explorer)

You can choose to assign selected indicators as triggering events for a policy. This flexibility and customization help scope the policy to only the activities covered by the indicators. Also, you can customize thresholds for each triggering event. Insider Risk Management in Microsoft 365 correlates various signals from the chip to the cloud to identify potential malicious or inadvertent insider risks, such as IP theft, security, and policy violations, and more. Built with privacy by design, users are pseudonymized by default, and role-based access controls and audit logs are in place to ensure user-level privacy.
