CompTIA S+ 

Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) S+ training designates knowledgeable professionals in the field of IT security. As an international, vendor-neutral credential, CompTIA S+ certification ensures successful students gain competency in network security, compliance and operational security, common/possible threats and vulnerabilities, application, data and host security, access control and identity management as well as cryptography. Earning CompTIA S+ Certification signifies to employers that candidates will apply their knowledge of security concepts, tools and procedures to prevent security breaches, react accordingly to any security incidents and anticipate further security risks in order to effectively guard against them. Many well-known companies, government contractors and government agencies employ CompTIA S+ certified staff in order to ensure the quality of their work and CompTIA S+ is also one of the options for certifications required by the US Department of Defense for both military personnel and contractors engaged in information security activities.

The CompTIA Security+ course provides students with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to become an IT security professional. This course is designed to fully prepare students to sit for and pass the CompTIA Security+ certification exam. Students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to identify risk and participate in risk mitigation activities as well as provide infrastructure, application, operational and information security. They will also acquire the knowledge necessary to apply security controls to maintain confidentiality, integrity and availability, as well as how to identify appropriate technologies and products. Finally, students will gain an awareness of applicable policies, laws and regulations with regard to IT security. Prospective job roles for successful candidates include security engineer, security architect, security assurance technician, security consultant/specialist, systems administrator, network administrator and security administrator. CompTIA N+ certification plus 2 years of technical networking experience with a focus on security is recommended for success on the exam.
