CompTIA Security+

CompTIA Security+ certification designates knowledgeable professionals in the field of security, one of the fastest-growing fields in IT. CompTIA Security+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification that demonstrates competency in Network Security, Compliance and Operational Security, Threats and Vulnerabilities, Application, Data and Host Security, Access Control and Identity Management Cryptography.

This course prepares for the Security+ certification exam SY0-501. Many corporations recommend or require the Security+ certification for their IT employees. Companies like Sun, IBM/Tivoli Software Group, Symantec, Motorola and Olympus Security Group know the value of a Security+ certification and recommend or require it of their IT employees.

This course includes access to a hands-on Practice-Lab which will allow candidates to have training in the practical application of the course concepts without having to buy any additional software and will prepare them for success on the certification exam.

Prerequisite(s): We recommend candidates possess CompTIA Network+ certification and two years of technical networking experience, with an emphasis on security.
