When this will happen

Rollout will begin in late November and is expected to be complete by late December.

Guided onboarding experience (GA): To improve the onboarding experience, we are introducing guided actions to support both new and existing tenants in setting up a quality insider risk management program (IRM). For the Admins and IRM role groups, we will highlight six recommended onboarding actions on the Overview page, such as selecting indicators and setting up a policy. Investigators and analyst role groups will also be shown recommended actions for how to conduct investigations on the Overview page. Even when actions are completed, admins can find the past recommended actions in the navigation screen entitled Recommended Actions.

Triage and investigation improvements (preview): To enhance triage and investigation, we’re including historical insights for Exchange Online, and will also input triggering events into Activity explorer to assist in the triage process. In addition, we are introducing filtering and sorting capabilities across the triage experience to help reduce time-to-action.

Enhancements including historical insight for Exchange Online, ingest triggering events into Activity explorer.

Policy customization enhancements (preview): We’re introducing the ability to fine-tune policies to trigger on precise exfiltration events. These precise exfiltration event triggers can be added to your data leak and departing employee data theft policies based on specific thresholds met for number of documents exfiltrated including upload to cloud, copy to USB and emailing outside the organization.
