Summary

The RSA Archer Public Sector Use Cases Deep Dive on-demand lab provides a closer look at five use cases:

  • Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M)
  • Authentication and Authorization
  • Continuous Monitoring

 

Overview

This self-paced on-demand lab is part of a series that offers a deeper look into specific use cases within the RSA Archer GRC product. The use cases included in the Public Sector solution area include: Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M), Authentication and Authorization, and Continuous Monitoring use cases. Many of these use cases build on each other to help provide organizations with a quick win and faster return on investment as their processes mature. 

 

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 a Third Party Management solution. 

 

Lab exercises provide students with the ability to practice what they have learned. To maximize the value of your learning experience, this course also includes access to RSA University’s virtual environment.

 

Audience

RSA Archer Partners, RSA customer support, and Professional Services, as well as Information Security Officers, Information System Security Officers or other users who are tasked with creating or managing Authorization Packages using the RSA Archer Assessment and Authorization Solution and related solution applications.

 

Delivery Type

On-Demand Lab

 

Duration

Estimated time to complete is 3 to 4 hours. Exact time required to complete all lab exercises will vary based on the existing Archer experience level of each learner.

 

Note: RSA University’s virtual lab environment is provided for 10 hours of overall practice time over a 14-day period.

 

Accessing the Lab Environment

Lab exercises are performed in the RSA University virtual lab environment. The downloadable Lab Guide provides detailed instructions on access the environment.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this training, the learner should be able to do the following for the use cases within the Third Party Management solution area:

  • Explain the business purpose of each use case
  • Define the individual Archer Components that make up each use case
  • Navigate the components that make up each use case
  • Complete common actions performed within each use case
  • If applicable, engage others in dialog needed to clarify implementation needs of each use case
  • Navigating the components that make up each use case
  • Completing common actions performed within each use case
  • Clarifying implementation needs of each use case
