As your organization's administrator, you can use the audit and investigation page to run searches related to Rule log events. There you can view a record of actions to review your user’s attempts to share sensitive data. For example, you can review events triggered by data loss prevention (DLP) rule violation events. Entries usually appear within an hour of the user action.
The Rule log events also list data types for BeyondCorp Threat and Data Protection.
