When this will happen

Rollout will begin in early July (previously late June) and is expected to be complete by late September (previously early August).

How this will affect your organization

The following policy templates will soon be generally available:

General security policy violations policy template detects general security violations by users. Based on severity of the Defender for Endpoint alert, a risk score will be assigned to a user’s activity and alerts will then be generated based on activity severity.

Security violations by priority users policy template detects security violations by priority users which may have a significant impact on your organizations’ critical areas. This policy template uses Microsoft Defender for Endpoint alerts to provide insights into security-related activities for these users.

Security policy violation by departing users policy template detects any inadvertent or malicious security violations for departing users and uses Microsoft Defender for Endpoint alerts to provide insights into security-related activities.

What you need to do to prepare

You’ll need to have Microsoft Defender for Endpoint configured in your organization and enable Defender for Endpoint for insider risk management integration in the Defender Security Center to import security violation alerts. For more information on configuring Defender for Endpoint for insider risk management integration, see Configure advanced features in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint.
