View the reports for data loss prevention
After you create your data loss prevention (DLP) policies, you'll want to verify that they're working as you intended and helping you to stay compliant. With the DLP reports in the Office 365 Security & Compliance , you can quickly view:
DLP policy report shows the count of DLP policy matches over time. You can filter the report by date, location, policy, or action.
DLP incidents: This report also shows policy matches over time, as the policy matches the report. However, the policy matches report shows matches at a rule level; for example, if an email matched three different rules, the policy matches the report shows three different line items. By contrast, the incidents report shows matches at an item level; for example, if an email matched three different rules, the incidents report shows a single line item for that piece of content.
DLP false positives and overrides: If your DLP policy allows users to override it or report a false positive, this report shows a count of such instances over time. You can filter the report by date, location, or policy.
All DLP reports can show data from the most recent four-month time period. The most recent data can take up to 24 hours to appear in the reports.
