Abstract

Add evidence to the evidence board to assist with your investigation. Mark any entity as evidence in the War Room by adding tags.

You can view or designate any entity as evidence which enables you to reconstruct attack chains and piece together key pieces of verification for root cause discovery.

In the War Room you can mark any entity as evidence by clicking the flag next to each entry. You can view the evidence in the War Room or open the evidence entry from the Evidence Board. When adding evidence you need to add a description which should contain enough details that can be used for future reference. Adding a tag helps you to find the evidence by searching for the tag. You can also add an occurrence date and time.
