 Not sure I agree about that. Export should be as close to the source as possible.

But any exported time format should easily be converted to human readable format by Excel or a similar tool.

If that is not the case I agree.

Perhaps it could be in a form of an option that allows to choose between epoch and human readable format before exporting.

I find it a little bit strange that when I see the data in the insight view with a correct date and when I export it, it looks different ?

How to explain that to a security administrator team that they need to reformat the data.

What you see is what you get .... should be here the option, maybe a raw data option ....
