Set Insight Generation Window and Threshold

This section has instructions for changing the detection window and the threshold Activity Score for Insight generation.

By default, the detection window is 14 days, and the threshold Activity Score is 12. That means if an Entity's Activity Score goes from 0 to 13 within a 14 day period, Cloud SIEM will generate an Insight on that Entity. For information about how that works, see Understanding Entity Activity Scores, in the Insight Generation Process topic.

To change the Insight generation settings:

  1. In the Cloud SIEM UI, click the gear icon and select Detection under Workflow.
    Detection link
    Your current detection settings are displayed on the Insight Detection page.
    Detection threshold settings
  2. Enter values for Detection Threshold and Signal Suppression:
    • Standard Threshold
      • Detection Window (Days). Enter the duration, in days, during which an Entity's Activity Score must reach the threshold to result in an Insight being generated for the Entity.
      • Threshold. Enter the threshold Activity Score value that an Entity must reach during the detection window to result in an Insight being generated for the Entity.
    • Global Signal Suppression
      • Maximum Period (Hours). By default, redundant Signals for a Signal-Entity combination are automatically suppressed for a maximum period of 72 hours to avoid repeated Signals contributing to Insight generation. This setting lets you modify this period based upon your organizational needs. To change this setting, select the number of hours to suppress Signals, anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours. For additional ways to control signal suppression, see About Signal Suppression.
  3. Click Save.
