New Scenario library application allows users to create and manage a set of scenario templates that can be used to easily create new scenario records through a data feed.
Delegated authorities provide the ability to route risks for acceptance to users that have been given the authority to approve a defined level of risk for each business unit level, ensuring efficient approval and ownership of risk throughout the organization.
RSA Archer Business Resiliency: In preparation for future RSA Ready integrations, modifications to the record permission structure have been made to RSA Archer Crisis Management and RSA Archer Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery Planning use cases.
RSA recommends that customers running RSA Archer Releases 5.5, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, or 6.4+ apply this latest update. Please note that all releases are cumulative. Upgrade information may be found in the Product Advisory.

RSA Archer Use Case Blog Series
Starting Wednesday, October 10, our GRC/Integrated Risk Strategists began publishing a weekly blog highlighting one of the 38 RSA Archer use cases. These blogs provide you with a quick overview of the basic business problem associated with the use case and the key features/benefits. There’s also a short paragraph describing how the use case may fit into the broader Integrated Risk Management message for your organization.
The blogs will post every Wednesday and continue into 2019 until all 38 use cases are covered. For convenience, you may follow the Use Case Blog Series and receive email notifications each time a new blog is released.
