Process/Service Activity Analysis

Hello everyone. I recently had a Windows 10 BSOD due to a Clock_Watchdog_Time, which i'm looking into, but i noticed something when it booted back up that piqued my curiosity.

For some reason, Windows Update and Microsoft Software Protection Platform were running for longer than normal when it came back up. Albeit, they were only using 13% of the CPU in total, but it got me wondering.

Is there a way to analyze and find out what Microsoft Software Protection Platform is doing? The only way I know how to check is the Event Viewer, but I'm not finding any Protection Platform service name in Event Viewer to try to filter for it.
