Join the Micro Focus ArcSIght Team in beautiful Ottawa, Canada next month (April) to build your ArcSight skills. We are sending an instructor to Ottawa to deliver two public classes: ArcSight ESM 6.5 Advanced Admin/CSE and ArcSight FlexConnector Configuration. This is a great opportunity to learn about ArcSight face-to-face from an ArcSight expert. The classroom format also gives you the opportunity to collaborate with peers to knowledge share and network. All while you earn CPE credits. Canada.jpg

YouTube's got some vids by Paul Brettle but is there any reading material or even books out there? Please advise.
