Course Description

CompTIA is a not-for-profit trade association with the purpose of advancing the interests of IT professionals and IT channel organizations and its industry-leading IT certifications are an important part of that mission. CompTIA’s Security+ certification is a foundation-level certificate designed for IT administrators with two years’ experience whose job role is focused on system security.

The CompTIA Security+ exam will certify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to assist with cybersecurity duties in small and large organizations. These duties include assessments and monitoring; secure network, host, app, and cloud provisioning; data governance; and incident analysis and response.

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals 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 to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents—not just identify them.

Security+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements. Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program.

Comments about the Instructor
"Way too thin to be a Navy Chief but has the coffee drinking part down. I work in OT not IT and am pretty new at it so I came into this class knowing a lot of this info was going to be over my head. Am definitely going to learn more about Power Shell and Wire Shark. WS especially could be valuable to me."

Comments about the Instructor
"Mr. Jacobs really impressed me with his knowledge of the subject matter and how he can put things in layman's terms so we can understand it. He gave a lot of great mnemonics to help us remember certain key pieces of information, and overall his humor kept me giggling throughout the course to keep me engaged."
