Report - SOC Daily Operations

The new Security Events and Incidents Summary report provides a brief summary of the events and incidents collected by the FortiAnalyzer. This report can be used to determine events and incidents by severity, date, and counts, and to view their trends over time.

Report sections

The report contains five main sections: Quick Insights, Overall Severity, Total Events Count by Severity and Category, Raised Incidents, and List of Incidents. It also has an appendix that lists the devices that provided the data.

Quick Insights

Overall Severity

  • Total Events by Severity Over This Period

    A stacked bar chart of the number events - colored by severity level - over the specific time period.

Total Events Count by Severity and Category

A table of the event name, number of occurrences, and percent of subtotal for each severity level. The total number and percent of events for each severity level, as well as the total number of events, is also included.

  • Total Incidents by Severity: a table and doughnut chart showing the total events for three severity levels - Low, Medium, and High - in descending order. The total number of events is also shown in the doughnut hole.
