The free course covers concepts such as IT layers, security hardening and defense in depth measures. The course can typically be completed in one hour and users can start and stop at any time. There is a private self-assessment quiz at the end that allows users to evaluate how well they have mastered the material. Grades are shown in private unless they decide to share it, but a passing grade on the self-assessment earns one CPE credit that individuals can use towards maintaining security certifications.
By taking the course, IT administrators and IT Security professionals can be armed with the knowledge to hold intelligent conversations both with their peers as well as their managers on improving their organization's IT security by protecting these critical and sensitive accounts. This information gives individuals best practices for password security for organizations and what that means for information assurance.
