In this instructor-led, online training course, you will be prepared for the CompTIA Security+ certification exam. The Security+ certification is an international, vendor-neutral certification. The certification is proof of a person’s competence in system security, network infrastructure, cryptography, assessments and audits.

This certification is designed for IT professionals who already have Network+ certification and two years of technical networking experience, with an emphasis on security. CompTIA’s Security+ certification certifies professionals in the field of information security, one of the fastest-growing fields in IT. CompTIA Security+ demonstrates competency in various domains such as:
  • Network Security
  • Compliance and Operational Security
  • Threats and Vulnerabilities
  • Application, Data and Host Security
  • Access Control and Identity Management
  • Cryptography

With the threat of data security becoming a rapidly growing issue, the need for trained information security personnel has increased multi-fold. Information Security is one of the fastest growing areas. Candidates who earn this certification will be able to prove their ability to anticipate information security risks and apply their knowledge of security concepts, and tools to safeguard organizational data, as well as know the procedures to react to security incidents, should they occur.

This online training course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for exam SY0-401.
