MC424903: Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention: Incident management in Microsoft 365 Defender portal (GA)

Currently available in public preview (MC387638), we’re rolling out a new unified incident management experience for Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal along with native integration with Microsoft Sentinel through the Microsoft 365 Defender connector in Sentinel. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93322.

This feature provides a singular view for incident management across solutions by making the Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention incidents available in the unified incidents queue in the Microsoft Defender portal. In addition, customers can also leverage the M365 Defender connector in Microsoft Sentinel to import all DLP incidents into Sentinel to extend correlation, detection, and investigation across additional Microsoft and non-Microsoft data sources and extend automated orchestration flows using Sentinels native SOAR capabilities.

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in mid-September and is expected to be complete by mid-October.

How this will affect your organization

This feature delivers a new and comprehensive DLP investigation experience that is native to the Microsoft 365 Defender portal and provides a singular view for incident management. Admins can also import all DLP incidents, alerts, and underlying audit activities into Sentinel to extend correlation, detection, and investigation across additional Microsoft and non-Microsoft data sources and extend automated orchestration flows using native SOAR capabilities. Features coming soon to general availability:

  • View all your DLP alerts grouped under incidents in the Microsoft 365 Defender incident queue
  • View intelligent inter-solution (DLP-Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, DLP-Microsoft Defender for Office 365) and intra-solution (DLP-DLP) correlated alerts under a single incident
  • Hunt for compliance logs along with security under Advanced Hunting
  • In-place admin remediation actions on user (i.e., mark as compromised, require sign-in), file (i.e., apply sensitivity label, retention label, unshare), and device
  • Associate custom tags to DLP incidents and filter by them
  • Filter unified incident queue by DLP policy name, tag, date, service source, incident status, or user
  • Leverage the Microsoft 365 Defender connector in Sentinel to pull DLP incidents into Sentinel for investigation and remediation

Please note that the DLP alerts dashboard in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal will continue to work as expected.
