MicroCourse Description

What is Identity and Access Management? (IAM) is the security and business discipline that "enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times and for the right reasons". Why do I need this certification? Without IAM, organizations will find themselves losing intellectual property, falling victim to security breaches from leaks within, and non-compliant with regulatory data security requirements. What will I learn? Through study of the processes used to identify, authenticate, authorize and audit subject/object access, you will learn the fine balance between providing access to resources while still maintaining their protection. Get Your Access Control and Identity Management Certification Today: Identity and Access Management (IAM) is rapidly becoming one of the most important disciplines of information security with far- reaching benefits, including institutional efficiency and effectiveness, reputation, competitiveness, system security, compliance and increased productivity. Without it, organizations will find themselves losing intellectual property, falling victim to security breaches from leaks within, and non-compliant with regulatory data security requirements. Usually, IAM occurs primarily within the firewall, whereas one typically worries about outside threats to the enterprise. One of IAM?s main areas of focus is passwords, something those outside of IT rarely think of, so an understanding of their importance is critical for professionals working with upper management to ensure security. The Identity and Access Management Micro Certification covers key skills to ensure you can manage user identities and govern access to resources and privileges on the corporate network. Through study of the processes used to identify, authenticate, authorize and audit subject/object access, you will learn the fine balance between providing access to resources while still maintaining their protection.
