Welcome to this course: CISSP Certification - Identity and Access Management. Access is one of the most exploited aspects of security because it is the gateway that leads to critical assets. This course covers provisioning and managing identities, and the access used in the interaction between humans and information systems. Access controls need to be applied in a layered defense-indepth method, and an understanding of how these controls are exploited is extremely important. The core concepts of identification, authentication, authorization and accountability are covered in detail here. In this course, we will explore access control conceptually and then dig into the technologies the industry puts in place to enforce these concepts. We will also look at the common methods the bad guys use to attack these technologies.
In this course, you'll learn:
- Controlling physical and logical access
- Identification and authentication
- Identity as a Service
- Third-party identity services
- Authorization methods
- Access control attacks
This course will help you to enter the exam room with confidence, knowing that you have done all you can to prepare for the big day. So let's get started.
