CompTIA Security+

Course Code: CO-SE+

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification a candidate should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on troubleshooting, ensuring candidates have practical security problem-solving skills required to: - Assess the security posture of an enterprise environment and recommend and implement appropriate security solutions - Monitor and secure hybrid environments, including cloud, mobile, and IoT - Operate with an awareness of applicable laws and policies, including principles of governance, risk, and compliance - Identify, analyse, and respond to security events and incidents

  • Level: Foundation
  • Technology: Security
  • Delivery Method: Instructor Led
  • Training Credits: NA
  • Duration: 5 Days

This course is targeted toward the information technology (IT) professional who has 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 wants to further a career in IT by acquiring foundational knowledge of security topics; preparing for the CompTIA Security+ certification examination; or using Security+ as the foundation for advanced security certifications or career roles.

Before attending this course delegates should possess basic Windows user skills and a fundamental understanding of computer and networking concepts. Additionally, delegates should have:

- Either attended the CompTIA Network+ course, or have equivalent knowledge or;

- Have a minimum of two years of technical networking experience, with an emphasis on security

In this course, delegates will describe the major networking technologies and systems of modern networks, and configure, manage, and troubleshoot modern networks. In addition, delegates will be able to:

- Assess attacks, threats and vulnerabilities

- Identify various threats to information security

- Conduct security assessments to detect vulnerabilities

- Implement secure cloud solutions

- Implement security for hosts and software

- Implement security for networks

- Implement cryptographic solutions in the organization

- Implement security at the operational level

- Ensure the continuity of business operations in the event of an incident

- Explain data privacy and protection concepts

This course will prepare delegates to write the CompTIA Security+ Exam SY0-701. Successfully passing this exam will result in the attainment of the CompTIA Security+ certification.
