Course announcements

  • This course is delivered in a Flipped Class approach! Flipped Classroom is a teaching strategy that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content outside of the classroom mostly in self-study mode while class time is reserved for more active learning like discussions, projects, exercises, and workshops.
  • Course Dates of the 2nd series: October 1, October 15 and October 22
  • During the One-Day Instructor-led Kick Off Event we will provide the students with introductory knowledge of Basic tools and options to look for security incidents as well as an introduction to the SAP Enterprise Threat Detection Solution. At the end of the first day, the students will already perform a first security exercise.
  • During the self-study phase the students will have access to the online course material to refresh their skills or build up their System Administration- and Security Knowledge (the material will be made available in the Kick Off Event)
  • In the middle of the self-study phase the students will come together for a One-Day Instructor-Led Session to get trained on the most important topics out of the training SECETD. This is the opportunity to discuss open questions out of the self-study phase of SECETD.
  • Key Element of this training is finally the Hands-On Security Challenge delivered again as One-Day Instructor-led Event, where the students get introduced to the Challenge Set Up, grouped into two teams (Attacker and Defender) to then work against the other team in a first round. After the lunch break the groups change their roles and start the second round in reversed roles.
  • The training will end with a final discussion of the solutions of the Challenge, a last summary, and Q&A options before we end up with the Winner Ceremony.

The main objective of the course is to understand how the different features of the product can be used, like Alert Processing, Forensic Analysis and Threat Hunting, Security Monitoring, customizing of the SAP delivered Alert Detection Patterns, creation of help charts. An important focus is given to the understanding of the different Log Data coming out of SAP ERP systems.
    • Another important aspect within the course is the setup of processes based on Best Practices, how to do Alert handling, Security Analysis, and how to build Standard Operation procedures based on Alerts.
    • Optional (depending on time availability): A technical overview shows the different components of ETD on how it can be set up in different modes (e.g. High Availability set up alternatives), and how to connect to the various log sources (especially ABAP-based SAP Systems).
    • Optional (depending on time availability): Furthermore, the different APIs are discussed to import and export log data into/from ETD, or to push or poll the Alerts from ETD into other Security products.
  • This course is ideal for security professionals who want to prepare for attack and defense scenarios in a hands-on workshop based on security challenge.
