Set up and download a custom report in the Security & Compliance Center

In the Security & Compliance Center, several smart reports and insights are available to help your organization's security team mitigate and address threats to your organization. If you're a member of your organization's security team, you can configure a report with custom date ranges and filters, and then download your custom report.
