FortiSOAR Design and Development – NSE 7

In this three-day class, you will learn how to use FortiSOAR to design simple to complex playbooks. You will learn to create your own dashboards using various built-in widgets, and install widgets from the widget library. You will review the dashboards that are built-in to FortiSOAR and learn to edit them according to your requirements.

In practical labs, you will explore the role of FortiSOAR in mitigating malicious indicators and creating interactive dashboards to display relevant information about alerts and incidents. You will design a playbook to extract indicators from a phishing email alert. You will also design a playbook to enrich those indicators using connectors to query threat intelligence platforms, such as FortiGuard. You will also design a playbook to mitigate malicious indicators by blocking them on FortiGate. You will configure a FortiSIEM connector to ingest incidents into FortiSOAR.
