ABOUT THE COURSE

CompTIA Security+ Certification and in the job market it is considered the most essential IT certification for establishing an IT career in cybersecurity. If you are trying to get your foot into the IT industry, this will help you achieve your goal. If you’re already an IT pro, the CompTIA Security+ certification authenticates your skills and can enhances your career.

This competency is used to validate foundational, vendor-neutral IT security knowledge and skills. As a benchmark for best practices in IT security, this certification covers the essential principles for network security and risk management — making it an important stepping-stone for your career.

To gain your CompTIA Security+ Global qualification you will be required to sit 1 exam.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The objective is that it will certify you with the skills and knowledge of the IT Security + concepts. What it will enable you to do is learn how to:

  • How to install and configure IT Systems to secure applications, networks, and devices.
  • Be able to perform a threat test and share the results.
  • Once the test is complete, you will be able to respond with the right avoidance techniques and ensure it does not happen again.
  • You will also learn what is operational and permissible within the IT Governance policies, laws and regulations. You will be confident in performing these tasks and support the  confidentiality, integrity, and data availability.

Safety and security is important to any organisation, and the CompTIA Security+ certification helps organizations make sure they're prepared. The certification focuses on topics like systems and networks, network infrastructure, access control, assessments and audits, cryptography, and organizational security. It provides safety and security information that's industry wide and up to date.

HOW DOES THE STUDY WORK

The Learning will be quite interactive and require you to participate.  It's designed to give you the tools and knowledge that will be required in order for you to ace your CompTIA Security+ exam first time. Once you've completed the E-Learning study, we would highly recommend logging on to your CompTIA Security+ Labs environment so that you can gain a solid understanding of how the technology is used. You will go through exercises for the Certification exam but also what a typical configuration a Network engineer would undertake at a real job setting.

You'll then want to hone in on what they'll be asking of you when setting for the official CompTIA Security+ Certification Exam. We offer 6 months access to the accredited CompTIA Security+ Practice Exam which will give many "mock questions"  that are perfect for practicing with as if it was an assessment right before taking your official exam. CertHub also provides flexibility for you to add the option of including the Official Certification exam as part of your learning. So, what are you waiting for?
