Message Redaction in Slack
Learn about Nightfall's new capabilities to redact messages within Slack as a remediation action
In the Nightfall for Slack Enterprise integration, you are now able to use redaction as a remediation action for messages!
Note: Only customers on Nightfall Slack Enterprise will have access to the Redaction feature. Redaction is now supported for all messages in DMs, as well as for Private and Public channels. It will also be supported as both a Manual & Automated remediation action.
Redaction as a remediation action will be shown on all violations in Slack. Once a message is redacted, the original message in the respective DM or channel will be edited with an attachment of the redacted message. All characters in the message, except the first two, will be masked with special characters.
As an example, a message of the form “This is a credit card 1111-11111-1111”
will be redacted and displayed as an attachment in the original message as
“Your message has been redacted as it potentially contained sensitive information.
This is a credit card 11****************.”
Any messages that are deleted or quarantined cannot be redacted. User activities are generated every time a message is redacted similar to all other remediation actions.

Note: Files and images scanned in Slack are not supported with redaction
