ISCG has created a reporting extension solution for Microsoft Azure Information Protection.

CHALLENGE WITH CURRENT SOLUTION 

The Log Analytics service from the Operations Management Suite is used to collect selected information (monitoring) from the Azure Information Protection logs. It provides the appropriate level of functionality to perform filtering and basic data presentation. Unfortunately, the labeling data itself is stored in rather raw format (not easy to read by business users). Quick access to the requested data also is limited and requires IT department engagement. Another challenge reported by large institutions especially in the public sector, was historical data storage limited in OMS to the last 2 years. Another issue was with dedicated integration of data from other sources (analysis and visualization).

THE ISCG INFORMATION SECURITY REPORT SOLUTION (ISR)

The ISCG solution for AIP uses Microsoft Power BI as a visual data presentation tool and Azure Infrastructure is used for data gathering (Services: AIP, OMS, AD), data storage on long term basis (Warehouse) and data transformation (ETL layer).
Power BI report is divided in to two views. First one “Information Security Report” allows business users to have current information about the process of managing and flow of information in the organization (offices, departments) – for management, security and controlling purposes.
These statistics are useful especially for the employees in the initial phase of the information processing awareness process. For the more mature organization it helps them to be in compliance with GDPR and RODO requirements.
Second view „Investigation” supports security departments in the data leaks investigation, allowing them for quick access to the full history of changes made on the protected data in the organization, ex. Find out why somebody lowered security level of the document before sending it outside the organization.
