Course Description

Security+ is a great course for people who want 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.

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 match the CompTIA certification exam areas. Topics covered include: 

  • Threats, Attacks, and Vulnerabilities - Detect various types of compromise and have an understanding of penetration testing and vulnerability scanning concepts
  • Technologies and Tools - Install, configure, and deploy network components while assessing and troubleshooting issues to support organizational security
  • Architecture and Design - Implement secure network architecture concepts and systems design
  • Identity and Access Management - Install and configure identity and access services, as well as management controls
  • Risk Management - Implement and summarize risk management best practices and the business impact
  • Cryptography and PKI -  Understanding of basic cryptographic concepts, algorithms, and functions. Install and configure wireless security settings and implement public key infrastructure. 

 Training is distance-delivered via Zoom with a combination of live lectures, readings, and labs. Many hours of independent self-study are expected outside of class meetings.

This course prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ certification. Although test prep for the certification exams is covered in class, additional study is needed. Certification exam which is included in this training is scheduled at the end of the course. Participants must report their test date and exam results.
