CompTIA Security+ Certification

Course Overview

The CompTIA® Security+® course is designed to help you prepare for the SY0-401 exam. Students will implement and monitor security on networks, applications, and operating systems, and respond to security breaches.

Who Should Attend

This course is targeted toward an Information Technology (IT) professional who has networking and administrative skills in Windows-based TCP/IP networks and familiarity with other operating systems, such as OS X, Unix, or Linux, and who wants to further a career in IT by acquiring a foundational knowledge of security topics; prepare for the CompTIA Security+ Certification examination; or use Security+ as the foundation for advanced security certifications or career roles.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • identify the fundamental concepts of computer security.
  • identify security threats and vulnerabilities.
  • examine network security.
  • manage application, data and host security.
  • identify access control and account management security measures.
  • manage certificates.
  • identify compliance and operational security measures.
  • manage risk.
  • manage security incidents.
  • develop business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

    Course Prerequisites

    Other Prerequisites

    After mastering CompTIA’s vendor-neutral approach to Security students may wish to look to a vendor-specific approach to security in a Microsoft of Cisco offering. Additionally students may want to expand their security by knowledge by focusing on security policy and procedures in CISSP. For a more targeted approach to Security there is the CEH offering.

    In order to obtain the Security+ Certification students must pass the Security+ 2011 Objectives exam code SY0-401.

    There are no enforced prerequisites, however the recommended prerequisites are the CompTIA Network+ certification and two years of technical networking experience with an emphasis on security.
