Common Entity Detectors

Nightfall includes detectors for several common data types.
  • Person Name
  • Street Address
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
To avoid non-sensitive violation counts, Nightfall recommends that common entity detectors be combined with one or more other detectors OR can be used singularly with minimum findings count greater than or equal to 10.
For example, you can add rigor to a US Social Security Number detection rule by including Person Name and configuring the rule to trigger a finding when both data types are found, as shown in the grab below.
