IdAM (Identity & Access Management)
Learning Objective:Identity and access management (IdAM) is the security discipline that enables the appropriate individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons. IdAM addresses the mission-critical need to ensure appropriate access to resources across increasingly heterogeneous technology environments, and to meet the increasingly rigorous compliance requirements. This security practice is a crucial undertaking for any enterprise. Enterprises that develop mature IAM capabilities can reduce their identity management costs and more importantly, become significantly more responsive in supporting new business initiatives. In this module you will glance over, various aspects related to the principle of Identity & Access Management. This covers various intricacies around concepts of Authorization, Authentication, Identity & access management and its benefits to an enterprise.

Phases of a Cyber Attack
Learning Objective:In this module, you will gain an overview of techniques & controls involved during various phases of a cyber-attack.
Topics:
Phase 1 —Reconnaissance: Adversary identifies and selects a target
Phase 2 —Weaponize: Adversary packages an exploit into a payload designed to execute on the targeted computer/network
Phase 3 —Deliver: Adversary delivers the payload to the target system
Phase 4 —Exploit: Adversary code is executed on the target system
Phase 5 —Install: Adversary installs remote access software that provides a persistent presence within the targeted environment or system
Phase 7 —Act on Objectives: Adversary pursues intended objectives e.g., data exfiltration, lateral movement to other targets

Security Processes in practice for Businesses
Learning Objective:A business primarily is about making profits via achieving set targets and by catering best to customers and keeping shareholders and investors happy. This involves huge number of complex and interdependent discrete processes to run smoothly, efficiently and in a well monitored way. Today IT being one of the core enablers & also an increasingly major business platforms – threats are more than likely to cause enough disruption that may cause the business to derail completely. In this module we will glance over a variety of such business processes - to appreciate the relation, applicability and practicability of various information/ cyber security and risk management concepts that may be put in place to help the business stay predictable, safer and within a controlled cyber risk profile thereby enabling it to continue chasing its set targets.
