Course Description

Despite the fact that passwords have been used in digital systems for over half a century and many standards and best practices have been developed, many organizations simply neglect to adhere to these standards and expose weaknesses for attackers to exploit. This course provides basic digital identity concepts, biometric authentication and multi-factor authentication approaches that can increase security. The learner will explore various authentication standards and techniques that can prevent unauthorized access of digital resources and services. This course was developed by the University of Memphis through the DHS/FEMA Homeland Security National Training Program
