Hi RSA Archer fans,


Once again, your friends at RSA University have teamed up to bring you some exciting pre-conference training opportunities! Please note that these training courses are limited in the number of students we can accommodate per course, do require pre-registration, and carry a cost that is separate from your conference fee. That said, these prices are at least 20% off list price, and as prior Summit and Charge events have shown, the available discounted training spots will go fast!


We strongly recommend you don’t delay and risk losing your chance to add even more value to your trip to Nashville for the RSA Archer 2018 Summit!


All of these courses will be held at the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown, a quick 3 minute walk from the main Summit hotel.  We commit that you’ll be out in time to join in the opening night fun on Wednesday, so make sure you register for the RSA Archer Summit as well if you haven’t already!


Visit the RSA Archer 2018 Summit website for registration and ongoing event information as we head toward the August 15-17 Summit event.

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.

RSA University is pleased to release RSA NetWitness Endpoint Foundations as an On-Demand Classroom. This video-based course serves as a general introduction to RSA NetWitness Endpoint for analysts and anyone else who uses or supports this tool. Video-based lectures comprise half the course, and is supported by hands-on access to a live RSA NetWitness Endpoint deployment and structured lab activities in the virtual lab.


As with all our On-Demand Classrooms, students have access to the same content delivered in class, including lab materials, without the expense and time required to travel to an in-person classroom. To find out more about RSA University On-Demand Classrooms and our other offerings, RSA Link.
