PORTLAND, Ore., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PKI Solutions, a company focused on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) consulting and training, today announced that its in-demand, technical Microsoft PKI In-Depth course is now available online: https://pkisolutions.com/training/. Learning how to correctly implement a PKI is crucial, especially since PKIs are the backbone of enterprise IT security and will become critical for Internet of Things (IoT) security, the forthcoming 5G cellular standard, and the SHAKEN/STIR technology standard to help prevent robocalls and spoofed calls. Students can get a deep dive into PKI and Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS) — in a self-paced environment — and learn how to successfully design, implement, and manage highly-secure PKIs.
The Microsoft PKI In-Depth online course focuses on building knowledge and skills, with a strong emphasis on security, best practices, and hands-on skills labs — with other courses to follow later this year. The online courses will cover all of the same topics and lessons as the highly popular, in-person courses that the company has provided for many years, including more than 20 hours of content and labs. Students will receive access to download the student materials, lab manuals, and supporting materials. The courses will feature video, audio, and slide-based content, taught by Mark B. Cooper, president and founder of PKI Solutions and known as The PKI Guy. He has been working with PKIs for two decades and has led hundreds of PKI trainings around the world.
At enterprises, PKIs support network authentication, data encryption, code signing, and secure email. In addition, 42 percent of IoT devices such as temperature sensors, televisions, and smart vehicles will soon rely primarily on digital certificates for identification and authentication for security, according to the 2018 Global PKI Trends Study. SHAKEN/STIR uses digital certificates, based on common public key cryptography techniques, to ensure the calling number of a telephone call is secure.

"It's no secret that a well-designed and deployed PKI will help your organization protect and manage data today and for years to come," said Cooper, one of the course's primary trainers. "Maybe you need a deep dive into PKI and ADCS to take your PKI skills to the next level or maybe you need to brush up on existing skills. Either way, we will empower you to improve your PKI skills with the latest in PKI training to stay ahead of the latest threats."
