  1. Log in to the Netskope tenant UI.

  2. Navigate to Policies > Security Posture. Then, click the Next Gen tab.

    The Security Posture page opens.

  3. Click the Rules tab. The Rules page displays a list of compliance standards and rules.

  4. Under the Compliance table, the UI displays a list of compliance standards. On selecting a compliance standard, the UI displays a list of rules on the Rules table. The Rules table has the following fields:
