Access Control, Authentication, and Public Key Infrastructure Training


Access Control, Authentication, and Public Key Infrastructure Training Course description

This Access Control, Authentication, and Public Key Infrastructure Training course defines the components of access control, provides a business framework for implementation, and discusses legal requirements that impact access control programs. It looks at the risks, threats, and vulnerabilities prevalent in information systems and IT infrastructures and how to handle them. Access Control, Authentication, and Public Key Infrastructure Training also provides learners a professional resource detailing how to put access control systems to work in addition to how to test and manage them.

In addition to premium instructional content from Jones & Bartlett Learning's comprehensive Information Systems Security and Assurance (ISSA) curriculum, this course provides access to a customized "virtual sandbox" learning environment that aggregates an unparalleled spectrum of cybersecurity applications. Providing instant, unscheduled access to labs from the convenience of a web-browser, this course allows you to practice "white hat" hacking on a real IT infrastructure—these are not simulations. Winner of the "Security Training and Educational Programs" top prize at the prestigious 2013 Global Excellence Awards by Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, these labs provide valuable exposure to complex, real world challenges and over 200 hours of training exercises on how hackers and perpetrators use these applications and tools.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
