CompTIA Security+ Certification

Course Summary

Security+ validates knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security and general security concepts. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that is taught at colleges, universities and commercial training centres around the world. Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that Security+ candidates have at least two years on-the-job networking experience with an emphasis on security. The Network+ certification is also recommended.

Because human error is the number one cause for a network security breach, Security+ is recognized by the technology community as a valuable credential that proves competency with information security. Major corporations such as Sun, IBM/Tivoli Software Group, Symantec, Motorola, Hitachi Electronics Services and Verisign value the Security+ certification and recommend or require it of their IT employees.

This course is designed to prepare candidates for the CompTIA Security+ examination. The Security+ Certification program is an industry-wide, vendor-neutral program developed and sponsored by The Computing Industry Technology Association.

The course covers the objectives for the SY0-301 examination, which seeks to certify that candidates have knowledge of the security issues relating to the IT work environment, including social and environmental influences.

The examination for this course is booked directly with the examination testing body Pearson VUE.
