Salem may forward you alerts it thinks are worth your review. Additionally, you can ask Salem to show you alerts that it is analyzing by first sending Salem a message such as "Hey Salem.: "

When a new cyber alert is provided to Salem, it uses the information available in the alert to understand what kind of threat is being represented. It will then use what it's learned to start adding additional context. As new context is made available, Salem will update its predicted likelihood of whether this alert represents a threat. Salem will ask questions to help it find paths to additional context. By answering Salem's questions, you help it perform better future investigations.

Periodically, Salem may reach out to you to ask you to answer a question. These questions are based on alerts recently received by Salem. Answering these questions improves Salem's ability to identify likely threats.
