RSA Archer Suite

321 posts

My first (and only) trip to Dallas, TX was as a high school junior to attend the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference. It was two action-packed days spent connecting with hundreds of amazingly talented and motivated youth, just beginning to embark on our professional journeys, attending sessions and learning valuable skills from notable industry professionals. I find it only fitting that my second trip to Dallas (now many years later) will be spent this time with hundreds of amazingly talented and motivated professionals, sharing ideas about business driven security, risk and compliance, and networking with fellow practitioners at RSA Charge. RSA Charge will bring together the best and brightest GRC professionals at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, October 17-19.

 

This year will mark my seventh year attending RSA Charge and it never ceases to impress me. For the past three years I have had the pleasure of overseeing the Archer Technical session track. The Archer Technical and Advanced Technical tracks are geared toward Archer administrators who want to expand their knowledge of the RSA Archer platform and learn creative ways to further extend its capabilities. From new Archer admins just starting out, to seasoned Archer experts, there is something for everyone. You can attend sessions delivered by our own RSA Archer engineers, who will be covering the newest features and functionality in the product. (It’s one of the rare occasions you can encounter our engineers out in the wild, and they’re more than happy to talk shop with you.) We also have customer-led sessions delivered by fellow RSA Archer admins who will share tips for managing the Archer platform, lessons learned, and highlight their own custom implementations that expanded the power of the RSA Archer framework. I’ve seen some of the most innovative ideas come from our customers and partners!

 

Here are a few of the highlights in the RSA Archer Technical track:

  • Hear Humana talk about how they migrated their business processes from a sunsetting system into RSA Archer.

  • Learn how U.S. Bank used the workflow capabilities in RSA Archer to centralize previously isolated processes across different internal teams and manage critical documentation through an integration with SharePoint.

  • Get a first look at new RSA Archer Platform 6.3 features, including our System Administrator dashboard for monitoring your RSA Archer deployment and new Bulk Record Operations that make it even easier to update your data in Archer.

  • Attend the “Stump an Admin” session where you’ll have the opportunity to seek answers to your own questions about the RSA Archer platform from a panel of veteran Archer Administrators. Can you stump the admins?

See the full Archer Technical track agenda here. And if that’s not enough, explore all of our other tracks in the full agenda!

 

The RSA Archer community is a vast network of technical and business professionals who have a genuine desire to support each other and share their knowledge and expertise. Many attendees have been coming to RSA Charge (and its predecessor, the Archer Summit) for years. It’s a culture and atmosphere unlike any other. Whether you are new to RSA Archer or you’ve been with us for years, there are sessions, working groups, hands-on labs, social events and more for you. If you haven’t yet registered, what are you waiting for? Follow this link to register now! If this will be your very first RSA Charge experience, welcome to the RSA Archer family. Prepare to be inspired. See you in Dallas!

 

RSA Charge 2017, the premier event on RSA® Business-Driven Security™ solutions, unites an elite community of customers, partners and industry experts dedicated to tackling the most pressing issues across cybersecurity and business risk management.

Back in the Saddle

Posted by Mason Karrer Employee Sep 12, 2017

Did you know IDC reported that companies with active GRC programs resolve their security breaches 63% faster and are 33% more efficient at assessing their risks? Would you like to hear directly from leading companies achieving those kinds of GRC successes? This year RSA Charge is rolling through the Big-D...Dallas, TX!! In the land of "go big or go home," the world's largest gathering of GRC professionals is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever! Registration for the October 17-19 event is filling up fast. Don't miss out!

 

Consider the following: According to a PWC study, 62% of companies expect cyber risk to cause disruption in the next 3 years. EY also released research showing that 86% of respondents did not believe their cybersecurity functions fully meet the organization’s needs. And the cost of data breaches is projected to exceed $2T globally by 2019 according to Juniper Research. What do these stats have in common? They all describe some aspect of business risk associated with the use of technology. That's why one of the RSA Charge tracks I'm most excited about this year is called "Managing Technology Risk in Your Business". This track will focus on those unique challenges that emerge where the business and technology risk environments intersect (and occasionally collide).

 

The customer submissions for this year's sessions are once again truly outstanding! Customer presenters from all over the globe will be onsite to speak on a variety of topics such as assessing risk on specific technology assets, normalizing risk and compliance reporting, addressing the human element of technology risk, and much more. It's so incredible how many inspiring stories and ideas our customer community has to share. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just beginning your GRC journey and looking for the basics, you won't be disappointed. RSA Charge has something for everyone, from executive roundtables to operational hands-on labs and demos. Plus, nearly every session is customer-led! What a truly awesome community!!!

 

Did you know that companies with mature risk management programs are measurably more profitable? RSA Charge being the largest GRC gathering on the planet is a great place to start learning how! If you haven't registered already, I highly encourage you to get on it before it's too late! The full schedule can be viewed here, and the registration page here. Several resources have also been uploaded on the RSA Charge website to assist with trip planning, etc. Need help justifying the cost? No problem! Several resources are available including an ROI calculator and more. Look forward to seein ya'll in Dallas real soon!

I grew up in England. So to me, my inner perception of Texas was always intertwined with that of America itself. Sort of like America, only more so. Having lived in the USA for 11 years, that has obviously changed and with 10 years in Kansas City I no longer look to the Lone Star State for tips on barbecue! As I think about heading down to RSA Charge in Dallas, my culinary questions run instead to whether the arrival of In-N-Out has displaced Whataburger in the Texan psyche. And conducting a risk assessment on exactly how many Texas-shaped waffles can be safely consumed at breakfast.


Of course, with all the training classes, refreshments, receptions and an awesome evening social at The Rustic planned, I’m starting to think that finding time to resolve such questions is going to be as hard as picking which sessions, keynotes and labs to attend. For my part, I’ve been watching the RSA Archer Suite Advanced Technical track take shape over the summer and I’m really excited to tell you about it. It’s so cool that we have an agenda that is heavy on customer-led sessions. I know you love hearing the hints and tricks our engineers have to share, and we won’t disappoint you this year with sessions on the capabilities of Search and Data Feeds that you might not know about. But I really love seeing what you have been able to do with Archer’s deepest powers too. Want to hear about integrating Archer with Tableau or using handheld devices as a collection point? We’ve got that covered, and much more – the full track agenda is now live. If you are an Archer Admin, or if you are going to become one, you’ll want to hear these sessions, and a registration for Charge will get you there. (Hot tip: that registration fee is still discounted through September 15th).


This year’s RSA Charge represents a personal milestone: my fifth year attending. This event is one of the absolute highlights of the year for me. I love how every year there are new faces - people early in their Archer journeys, eager to learn - alongside familiar faces, back year after year, eager to share their advice and experience. That sense of camaraderie and shared endeavour is what makes Archer what it is: a product, an industry, a community. And there’s no better place to get plugged into that spirit (or re-connected, if you’ve been doing this for a while) than at this year’s RSA Charge, October 17-19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX.

RSA Charge 2017, the premier event on RSA® Business-Driven Security™ solutions, unites an elite community of customers, partners and industry experts dedicated to tackling the most pressing issues across cybersecurity and business risk management. Through a powerful combination of keynote speeches, break-out sessions and hands-on demos, you’ll discover how to implement a Business-Driven Security strategy to help your organization thrive in an increasingly uncertain, high-risk world. Join us October 17 – 19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.

Since 1930, the official State motto of Texas has been “Friendship”.  This is an apt description of the largest GRC user group in the world, RSA Charge, being held in Dallas, Texas, October 17 – 19. In a previous blog, Steve Schlarman shared an overview and highlights of this year’s event.

 

One of the event tracks this year is “Inspiring Everyone to Own Risk”.  This track brings together risk management practitioners across various industries and geographies to discuss challenges and successes they have experienced managing risk using the RSA Archer Suite of solutions.  This track includes a representative sampling of subjects from each of the Enterprise and Operational Risk Management challenges including: Issues Management, Establishing and maintaining a risk taxonomy and risk register, Self-assessments, Engaging the lines of defense, Third-party risk and performance management, and Business continuity management.

 

We had a great pool of speaker submissions this year.  In some cases, like Issues management and Third-party risk management, we had so many submissions we turned them into panel discussions so that you can benefit from the collective knowledge of multiple experts in these fields.

 

Combined with tracks at RSA Charge focused on regulatory and corporate compliance and information security management, practitioners have an opportunity to learn about each of the most important topics facing Operational Risk Managers today, including how to transform technology risk into Business-Driven Security.  In addition, you will have the opportunity to share ideas and learn from your peers, thought leaders, and specialists in these areas as well as see demonstrations of the RSA Archer Suite.  

 

For those of you that haven’t looked at the complete Agenda, you will find it full of great sessions. We have over 200 submissions from customers and partners, representing over 70 companies from a wide range of industries and geographies, along with a great representation of government agencies.

 

Yes, hosting RSA Charge in the State of Friendship is very apropos.  You will create and renew friendships with attendees with similar challenges and governance perspectives; learn new and innovative risk management methods; and affirm your best practice approaches.

 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Dallas!  If you haven’t registered, do so today.

I’m excited for this year’s RSA Charge event because, one, it’s Charge, and two, it’s in Texas! I used to live in El Paso and Ft. Worth, Texas so I consider myself an honorary citizen and always enjoy returning.  I also love returning to the RSA Charge conference each year - this ain’t my first rodeo, in fact this is my sixth time attending Charge and each year it gets better. Check out the schedule here and you’ll see what I mean.  RSA Charge 2017 Agenda.  

 

Why do I enjoy RSA Charge so much? I love getting together with my RSA Archer Audit Management and Business Resiliency working groups and discussing how we can make our solutions even better, as well as meeting face-to-face with the RSA Archer Champion Network – real Archer experts. What I’m as excited for this year though is managing the Transforming Compliance presentation track and working with all of the speakers who are preparing to knock your boots off with some phenomenal customer presentations.  It’s the second time I’ve managed one of the presentation tracks, and although it’s a daunting responsibility driving this herd and helping shape the body of knowledge that will be shared with you at Charge, I really enjoy getting to know the speakers and helping them make their presentations the best they can be.

 

The sessions in the Transforming Compliance track (check it out here: Transforming Compliance Track) are designed to help you break that “buckin' bronc” of compliance.  Just listen to these topics – transforming compliance, accelerating the journey, innovating, improving the use of self-assessments, and bringing different compliance functions together.  If those topics don’t blow that stetson hat off your head, then I don’t know what will! Another benefit of attending RSA Charge is not only listening to these amazing topics but being able to mingle afterwards with the presenters, making lasting contacts and staying in touch after the conference with folks who can help make your ride down that long trail using RSA Archer so much better.  It’s a win-win-win!

 

I’ll wrap up by saying if this ain’t enough to get you excited for this amazing event, then in memory of Glen Campbell, head to “Galveston”...I mean Dallas.  Register for RSA Charge, and come to where, "the lights are gonna be shinin’ on you - like a Rhinestone Cowboy" (or Cowgirl of course)!

 

See ya'll at Charge!

Texas. What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the name Texas? The Dallas Cowboys, football and Friday Night Lights? J.R. Ewing, oil rigs and Texas Tea? I like to picture scenes from the Wild West – cattle drives, gamblers playing Texas Hold’em and the dusty streets of Laredo. How about the largest GRC user group coming together to share experiences, learn about the risk and security industry and make new connections? They say everything is bigger in Texas and this year – we aim to make Texas proud.

That’s right, RSA Charge is right around the bend charging toward us like an old stagecoach careening through the sage brush and cacti of the Texas countryside. Hosted in beautiful Dallas, this year’s event is full of best practices, lessons learned, tips and tricks and the best GRC community experience this side of the Rio Grande – actually ANY side of the Rio Grande. With this being the 14th year of the Archer community gathering, this could very well be the most varied and strong collection of content we have ever had.

For those of you that haven’t looked into the Agenda, you will find it full of great sessions. We had a tremendous amount of submissions this year - over 200 submissions from customers and partners. After long hours and some tough decisions, we have rustled up the best of the best. Over 70 companies from a wide range of industries and geographies, along with a great representation of government agencies, are participating in our sessions this year.   We have a fantastic mix of old-timers – veteran presenters from Bank of the West, Citizens Bank, Humana, US Bank and others – and newcomers (just don’t call them tenderfoot!) – on the Agenda. Our customers’ stories, our sponsors’ insights and our product vision and roadmap will be on full display.

Just a few of the highlights:

  • We will have keynote addresses from RSA’s Rohit Ghai, Grant Geyer and Zully Ramzan. 
  • The RSA Archer SuperSession gives us the opportunity to gather as a community with keynotes and discussions highlighting RSA Archer’s vision and product strategy and industry perspectives.  As usual, we will also recognize our leading customers with our annual awards.

And so much more…

Over the next few weeks, the individual track owners will be giving you some highlights of the agenda through a series of blogs. Stay tuned to learn more about what is charging your way and make sure to register early. I look forward to seeing you in Dallas!

RSA Archer is thrilled to be a major sponsor at the 2017 Governance, Risk and Control Conference being held August 16-18 at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas, Texas. Check out the conference details here: IIA GRC Conference.  

 

RSA will be joined by more than 600 governance, risk, and control professionals from 40+ countries at this event that draws together the best and brightest minds to embrace challenges, forge solutions, and define the future of global GRC.  

 

This conference will be a venue for learning and breaking down barriers and issues we all face.  RSA Archer GRC and Audit experts will be demonstrating the latest version of the RSA Archer suite of solutions, focusing on our Audit Management, Risk Management and Compliance solutions.  In addition, since RSA is a premier IT security company, we will also have experts on hand sharing their experience with conference attendees on one of the most complex areas internal auditors have to face - and that’s IT security risks and controls.  Stop by our booth to discuss the specific issues your organization is facing.

 

You know the term, “A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships”? This conference will be the time to come together and share best practices so the field of GRC can advance collectively, and improve every organizations’ ability to implement capabilities that are effective, efficient and mature.  RSA is proud to be part of this great conference! 

 

 

For the fourth consecutive report, Dell (RSA) has been named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Business Continuity Management Program Solutions (BCMP)!

 

Of note, RSA Archer has again been named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrants for Operational Risk Management, IT Vendor Risk Management, and IT Risk Management.

 

In the BCMP MQ, Gartner states that, “the 2017 BCMP solutions market — with an estimated $300 million global market revenue — has broadened its IT disaster recovery management, crisis management and risk management capabilities since 2016.” 2.  They go on to say that, “the critical capabilities of BCMP solutions center on providing business leaders with a more effective means of evaluating operational risks and business impacts, as well as planning for, responding to, recovering from, and restoring after a business disruption.” 2.  And we couldn’t agree more.  BCM continues to evolve as a critical function that must focus on managing business risk and IT risk, covering the lifecycle from resiliency planning to execution, and providing management with information to make decisions based on real business impacts.  Also, as implied in the name change for this Magic Quadrant, from “Planning” to “Program” solutions, BCM teams now play a larger part in the organization’s risk mission and must run their BCM programs accordingly to support this increased responsibility.

 

We believe that an important factor in RSA’s placement as a Leader was based on our ability to leverage risk throughout the platform and solutions; especially critical in light of Gartner’s emphasis that BCM is an important contributor to risk management.

 

We extend our gratitude to our customers for sharing their valuable insights and experiences with Gartner. For as long as the RSA Archer product roadmap and capabilities have existed, our community of active and enthusiastic users has been at the heart of it all, and we thank you.

With today’s ever growing threat landscape, the volume, sophistication, and potential damages of attacks is increasing. It is becoming increasingly harder to stop attackers from entering your system networks, isolating their motives, and most importantly removing them once they are there.  A typical security environment uses multiple disconnected technologies, supplying an immense amount of information.  Prioritizing a specific piece of data is important to responding quickly to attacks.  At a higher level, however, there is a need to understand if the security strategy is really effective for the business.  In summation, businesses need to change their security strategies.

 

The solution?  RSA provides a top down approach strategically linking business risk management with security events and priorities

  • Make security teams operationally more impactful
  • Strategically manage business risk

By bringing different practices together, linking security incidents with business context allows security teams to respond faster to protect what matters most.

The RSA suite of tools

  • Keeps the bad actors out, but allows entry to those that have legitimate need to easily access the system
  • Enables visibility and analytics to view the big picture to provide insights into specific attacks
  • Provides business context linked to contextual intelligence for a more informed approach
  • which can then be translated into action

The video in this eLearning discusses how RSA’s tools provide both the detailed information linked to the business context to protect the most sensitive assets.

Results of a recent Deloitte global survey on third party governance and risk management found that "87% of respondents have faced a disruptive incident with third parties in the last 2-3 years, of which 28% faced major disruption and 11% experienced a complete third party failure."

 

Clearly, the significance of third parties in business today – and the risk that comes with it -- can’t be overstated. With growing reliance on third parties and outside vendors in all aspects of business, now more than ever, organizations need the right tools to help them properly manage these critical relationships.

 

It is against this backdrop that we are pleased to announce that Gartner has named Dell RSA Archer as a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management – the third consecutive time for this designation. The report evaluates and compares IT VRM software vendors with respect to competitive buying criteria.

 

 

We believe Gartner has once again recognized RSA Archer as a Leader in the IT VRM market based on the robust feature set of our solution and the configurability and workflow options our platform provides customers. We also think Gartner understands our use case approach that allows customers to deploy our solutions based on their current and expected levels of maturity without unnecessary overinvestment or complexity.

 
We’d like to sincerely thank our customers who participated in Gartner's assessment this year.  We know you are very busy, but your feedback is invaluable in helping to inform others of your experience with RSA Archer.
