Cyber Security Essentials Access Control 1 Day

Access Control domain covers mechanisms by which a system grants or revokes the right to access data or perform an action on an information system.

CISSP candidates should fully understand access control concepts, methodologies and their implementation within centralized and decentralized environments across an organization’s computing environment.

It's important to control access to information so that organizations can maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of that information. Access controls prevent unauthorized users from retrieving, using, or altering information. These controls are determined by an organization's risks, threats, and vulnerabilities.

Access is one of the most exploited aspects of security, because it is the gateway that leads to critical assets. Access controls need to be applied in a layered defense-in-depth method and an understanding of how these controls are exploited is extremely important.

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.
