Activity Category

Activity Categories provide a useful method to group activities together by similarity rather than by organization structure or location so that they can be easily compared. It is also possible to force all activities within a category to consider the applicability of a particular type of threat.

If an activity has not been assigned a category, it will automatically be assigned to the special All Activities category. It is not possible to require threats to be considered by all activities within this special category.

You can create additional categories by right-clicking on the All Activities category. You can assign an activity to a particular category by dragging an dropping it.

An activity can be placed in more than one category by holding down the CTRL key when dragging and dropping it.
