Remediation on Nightfall for Slack

Learn how Nightfall can remediate data exposure risks in Slack

Sensitive data like personal information or credentials can pose a large risk when found in Slack messages. Read our guide to remediating these DLP risks in Slack.

Nightfall’s Slack integration offers the ability to set up automated remediation workflows. In general, we recommend that before setting up automated remediation workflows, you first test detection while leveraging manual workflows. Once you’ve optimized detection and identified key patterns in the types of violations and required remediation action, you can automate the process.

Slack alerts on violations in real-time, and remediation actions can be taken from within the Slack interface, via Email or via the Nightfall console. Manual Slack remediation options will appear as options within the violation alert, and include:

  • Notify the end user.

  • Delete the violation.

  • Redact message - will replace the message with a set of ** characters, aside from the first few characters. Supported with Nightfall for Slack Enterprise plan only. Supported only on messages and not on images/files.

  • Quarantine - the violation places the violation in the Content channel and the Quarantine channel. Supported with Nightfall for Slack Enterprise plan only.
