The CompTIA Security+ exam will certify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to install and configure systems to secure applications, networks, and devices; perform threat analysis and respond with appropriate mitigation techniques; participate in risk mitigation activities; and operate with an awareness of applicable policies, laws, and regulations.
CompTIA Security+ is the 3rd Essential Technology that engineers should master to defend IT systems. As a systems engineer you are on the front line and need to recognise risk and respond appropriately. It is also aimed at IT professionals with job roles such as security architect, security engineer, security consultant/specialist, information assurance technician, security administrator, systems administrator, and network administrator.
Ideally, you should have successfully completed the 'CompTIA Network+ Support Skills' course and have experience of networking support or IT administration. It is not necessary that you pass the Network+ exam before completing Security+ certification, but it is recommended.
Specifically, it is recommended that you have the following skills and knowledge before starting this course:
Know the function and basic features of the components of a PC.
Use Windows Server to create and manage files and use basic administrative features (Explorer, Control Panel, Server Manager, and Management Consoles).
Operate the Linux OS using basic command-line tools.
Know basic network terminology and functions (such as OSI Model, Topology, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, switches, routers).
Understand TCP/IP addressing, core protocols, and troubleshooting tools.
This course will teach you the fundamental principles of installing and configuring cybersecurity controls and participating in incident response and risk mitigation.
Study of the course can also help to build the prerequisites to study more advanced IT security qualifications, including CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA)+, CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP), and ISC’s CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional).
On course completion, you will be able to:
