UI Learning Center Launches a UI IT Security Course on "Access Control"

The ITSC is launching a UI IT Security Training “track” with its first course, now available, on “Access Control” for Unemployment Insurance IT Systems. This course addresses the IT Security topic of Access Control in a UI system. Access Control, involves who can get on the system or gain access to data or activate functions or use services in an information technology world. This begins with determining exactly who the individual is who wants to use the system. This is typically the most problematic step, particularly in the case where people want to use the internet from the convenience of their home or their favorite hot-spot.

As part of registration some sort of password or other form of identification is set up to simplify future accesses. During registration you can also establish what you will be allowed to do whenever you return to the system. This course will provide an overview of the access control process at work in the area of Unemployment Insurance. Topics include the basic concepts of access control (Identification, Authentication, and Authorization) to some state examples of securing access to their UI systems and preventing unauthorized users.

The next course for the UI IT Security Training “track” will be on “Understanding and Dealing with Identity Theft in UI.”
