OVERVIEW

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

This course may earn a Credly Badge.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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

TARGET AUDIENCE

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.
