CompTIA Security+

EXAM CODES SY0-501

About Security+

The CompTIA Security+™ certification is designed for learners whose job responsibilities include securing network services, devices, and traffic. Our self-paced online course content will prepare you for the CompTIA Security+ examination, the SY0-501.

CompTIA’s Security+ syllabus covers the most important principles for securing a network and managing risks in a working enterprise environment. This course will build your knowledge and professional experience with computer hardware, operating systems, and networks – undertaking this training program will allow you to acquire the specific skills required to implement basic security services on any type of computer network.

This course has been built for Information Technology (IT) professionals who have networking and administrative skills in Windows-based TCP/IP networks and familiarity with operating systems such as NetWare, OS X, UNIX/Linux, and OS/2. These IT professionals will be looking to further their career in IT by acquiring a foundational knowledge of security topics and earn an official qualification as they do so.

CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills you need to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career.

Why is it different?

  • No other certification that assesses baseline cybersecurity skills has performance-based questions on the exam. Security+ emphasizes hands-on practical skills, ensuring the security professional is better prepared to problem solve a wider variety of issues.

  • More choose Security+ for DoD 8570 compliance than any other certification.

  • Security+ focuses on the latest trends and techniques in risk management, risk mitigation, threat management and intrusion detection.

  • The new Security+ certification covers the Junior IT Auditor/Penetration Tester job role, in addition to the previous job roles for Systems Administrator, Network Administrator, and Security Administrator.
