IBM QRadar SIEM Advanced Topics BQ203G

2 days


IBM® Security QRadar® enables you to minimize the time gap between when a suspicious activity occurs and when you detect it. Attacks and policy violations leave their footprints in log events and network flows of your IT systems. To connect the dots, QRadar SIEM correlates these scattered events and flows into offenses that alert you to suspicious activities. Using the skills taught in this course, you will be able to configure processing of uncommon events, work with reference data, and develop custom rules, custom actions, and custom anomoly detection rules.

The lab environment for this course uses the IBM QRadar SIEM 7.3 platform.
