Course Overview

CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. Gaining a CompTIA Security+ certification demonstrates your knowledge of industry-wide information assurance topics, like systems security, network infrastructure, access control, assessments and audits, cryptography, and organisational security.

More choose Security+ – chosen by more corporations and defence organizations than any other certification on the market to validate baseline security skills and for fulfilling the DoD 8570 compliance.

The CompTIA Security+ certification exam will verify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to assess the security posture of an enterprise environment and recommend and implement appropriate security solutions; monitor and secure hybrid environments, including cloud, mobile, and IoT; operate with an awareness of applicable laws and policies, including principles of governance, risk, and compliance; identity, analyze, and respond to security events and incidents
