Enterprise Identity and Access Control

Course

This course focuses on identity and access management. As a security architect, implementing an organization-wide strategy for strong Identity and access management can greatly improve the security posture of the organization. IAM can be tricky to architect and implement. Too much access can lead to data exposure, whereas, too little access can lead to business hindrance. A fine balance is required while designing a strong IAM model. We will be covering some of those concepts and methodologies in this course.
