SSDLC (Secure Software Development Life Cycle)
Learning Objective: In this module, you will glance over, various aspects related to data and endpoint (host) security. This being a primary need, is a very crucial topic.
Data Security Controls
Host/ Endpoint Security Controls
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.
IAM life cycle
Identity & Access Management Process and activities (Role Based, Single Sign on)
Learning Objective: In this module you will glance over a vast topic of securing the cloud! You will first have an overview of types of cloud infrastructure and then delve into security concerns & potential solutions.

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.
