Access control, and in particular electronic access control, is a fundamental aspect of security, allowing access to those that are authorised and denying access to those that are not. Access control systems will form part of an overall security plan and must be relevant and adequate in their design and interaction.

Access control systems can be found everywhere in the modern world from high security buildings through to public car parks, both these examples strive for the same outcome, which is to control access by either allowing or restricting access. Electronic access control systems provide a convenient and efficient way in which to secure a building or asset whilst reducing costs in the long term. This course serves to introduce access control and systems from a basic perspective and to provide those that need to be aware of the usages and more importantly the benefits and weaknesses.
