Course Overview

This course provides you with the knowledge required to use advanced ArcSight ESM content to find and correlate event information, perform actions such as notifying stakeholders, graphically analyze event data, and report on security incidents. You will familiarize and/or reinforce your understanding of the advanced correlation capabilities within ArcSight ESM that provide a significant edge in detecting active attacks. This course covers ArcSight security problem solving methodology using advanced ESM content to find, track, and re-mediate security incidents. During the training, you will use variables and correlation activities, customize report templates for dynamic content, and customize Dashboards to monitor incidents.   The last day of class offers a hands-on exam. Passing the exam awards you with Certified Expert badge.
