About this Course

CompTIA Security+ certification validates knowledge of security fundamentals, basic risk identification and analysis, threat identification and assessment, IT infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security, and general security processes including incident response and business continuity.

Certification Track:

This course will prepare students to take the SY0-501 CompTIA Security+ Certification exam, for the objectives released in 2017 and first tested in October 2017.

CompTIA Security+ Certification has been created as a benchmark for entry-level security skills.

Completion of the CompTIA Security+ certification meets criteria for the DoD 8570.01-M Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program requirements, as modified and enforced starting January 24, 2012. CompTIA Security+ training is becoming a mandate for persons seeking to enter or maintain a career where security implementation and leadership are pre-requisites.

Audience Profile

This course is intended for students wishing to qualify for CompTIA Security+ certification. The qualification is aimed at computer and networking professionals with a minimum of 24 months experience.  Since security is vital to all levels and job roles within an organization, it will also benefit PC support analysts, application developers, and senior managers in accounting, sales, product development, and marketing who need an introduction to security terms, concepts, and best practices even if certification is not the intended goal.

At Course Completion

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

  • Identify device, network, and social attack strategies and defenses.
  • Understand the principles of organizational security and the elements of effective security policies.
  • Know the technologies and uses of encryption standards and products.

  • Describe how local and remote access security are enforced.
  • Describe the standards and products used to investigate and enforce security on network and Internet enabled technologies.
  • Identify strategies for ensuring business continuity, fault tolerance, and disaster recovery

Prerequisites

Ideally, students should have successfully completed CompTIA A+ or Network+ certification and have around 24 months' experience of personal computer or networking support.
