Changes to Cloud App Catalog and Risk score calculation

Changes to Cloud App Catalog and Risk score calculation

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps is making some changes to improve the scoring of apps in the Cloud App Catalog, which will affect organizations in mid to late December 2022. To improve scoring accuracy, certain non-relevant and redundant indicators will be removed from the catalog, such as Consumer Popularity Index and Jericho Forum Commandments. Others will still be presented for information, but will no longer be part of the score calculation. The Disaster Recovery Plan indicator will be moved to the Security section, while the SSAE 16 indicator will be replaced with SSAE 18. As a result, the risk score of some applications may change, and new alerts may trigger if organizations have created discovery policies based on the total score of apps or removed indicators. Therefore, organizations are advised to review their existing discovery policies and make the necessary modifications or create new policies as required.
