The RSA Archer Fundamental Use Cases Deep Dive on-demand lab provides a closer look at two use cases that serve as pre-requisites for other use cases: Issues Management and Business Impact Analysis.


Each of these use cases may also be implemented as standalone use cases within RSA Archer.



This self-paced on-demand lab is the first in a series that offers a deeper look into specific use cases within the RSA Archer GRC product. The Issues Management use case is a prerequisite for many other use cases within a number of solution areas. Business Impact Analysis is a pre-requisite for other use cases within the Business Resiliency solution. Each of these use cases can be configured independently of other use cases and can help
provide organizations with a quick win and faster return on investment.


Within this on-demand lab, students will have the opportunity to view demo videos, review documentation, and observe a sample design session that gives the viewer some insight into things that should be considered prior to implementing the Issues Management use case.


Lab exercises provide students with the ability to practice key tasks performed using the RSA Archer Issues Management Use Case and the Business Impact Analysis Use Case. To maximize the value of your learning experience, this course also includes access to RSA University’s virtual environment.
