CompTIA® Security+ is a good first course for people wanting to begin their cybersecurity career. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on trouble-shooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents - not just identify them.
Human error along with spyware, malware, e-mail attacks, viruses, worms, and wireless technology are reasons for security training and certification. This Security+ course is taught with a practical approach to prepare you for the certification exam and for skills required on the job. You will apply general security concepts to real world scenarios. Competencies exactly match the CompTIA® certification exam areas:
- Network Security
- Compliance and operational security
- Threats and vulnerabilities
- Application, data, and host security
- Access control and identity management
Both the Security+ certification exam and a study guide are included. Security+ is compliant with ISA 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
Two years of IT administration experience in a professional environment with emphasis on security. Network+ or equivalent knowledge is also recommended.
