The Jones & Bartlett Learning Information Systems Security & Assurance Cirriculum meets all standards put forth by CNSS 4011 & 4013A. Ensure your students are prepared for their future careers by using Jones & Bartlett Learning’s certified courseware.

This course introduces the concept of access control to information systems and applications. Access, authentication and accounting for end-users and system administrators will be covered. In addition, security controls for access control including tokens, biometrics, and use of public key infrastructures (PKI) will be covered.

Major Instructional Areas

  • Access control policy framework
  • Risk mitigation with sound access controls
  • Information technology (IT) infrastructure access control requirements and implementation
  • PKI and encryption
  • Security controls in an IT infrastructure
  • Authentication solutions

Course Objectives

  • Define authorization and access to an IT infrastructure based on an access control policy framework.
  • Mitigate risk to an IT infrastructure’s confidentiality, integrity, and availability with sound access controls.
  • Analyze how a data classification standard impacts an IT infrastructure’s access control requirements and implementation.
  • Develop an access control policy framework consisting of best practices for policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines to mitigate unauthorized access.
  • Define proper security controls within the User Domain to mitigate risks and threats caused by human behavior.
  • Implement appropriate access controls for information systems within IT infrastructures.
  • Design appropriate authentication solutions throughout an IT infrastructure based on user types and data classification standards.
  • Implement a secure remote access solution.
  • Implement PKI and encryption solutions to ensure the confidentiality of business communications.
  • Mitigate risk from unauthorized access to IT systems through proper testing and reporting.
