Access controls enable the protection of security assets by restricting access to systems and data by users, applications and other systems. In this Security School webcast with expert Shon Harris, learn how access controls support the core security principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability by inducing subjects to positively identify themselves, prove they possess appropriate credentials, and the necessary rights and privileges to obtain access to the target resource and its information.

Access controls are the cornerstone of an information security program. This Domain Spotlight provides an in-depth look at the challenges you'll learn in the webcast on deep exploration of the principles behind access controls, their diverse variety, what threats they can mitigate and the challenges of selecting, implementing and administering them. The following topics are included:

  • Access control principles
  • Access control administration and practices
  • Access control models and technologies
  • Access control types, methods and techniques
  • Access control threat monitoring
