This course is intended for

This course is designed for information technology (IT) professionals who have networking and administrative skills in Windows®-based Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) networks; familiarity with other operating systems, such as macOS®, Unix®, or Linux®; and who want to further a career in IT by acquiring foundational knowledge of security topics or using CompTIA Security+ as the foundation for advanced security certifications or career roles.
This course is also designed for students who are seeking the CompTIA Security+ certification and who want to prepare for the CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 Certification Exam.


In this course you will:
Prepare for the CompTIA Security+ exam
Confidently explain and define an array of security vulnerabilities
Navigate the complexities of secure system and network design
Explore the defensive measures like PKI, firewalls and IDS
Implement robust identity management and access control


This course maps to the CompTIA Security+ certification exam (SK0-601) and establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role, as well as providing a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. This course emphasizes both the practical and hands-on ability to identify and address security threats, attacks and vulnerabilities. CompTIA Security+ is a globally trusted, vendor-neutral certification that validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. CompTIA Security+ is also a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification and this course meets DoD 8140/8570 Training requirements.
