CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) is an advanced-level
cybersecurity certification for security architects and senior security
engineers charged with leading and improving an enterprise’s cybersecurity
What’s in this version
Information security threats are on the rise globally. organisations are
increasingly concerned over the lack of adequately trained senior IT
security staff’s ability to effectively lead and manage the overall
cybersecurity resiliency against the next attack. Updates to CASP+ qualify
advanced skills required of security architects and senior security
engineers to effectively design, implement, and manage cybersecurity
solutions on complex enterprise networks.
Why is CASP+ Different?
CASP+ is the only hands-on, performance-based certification for advanced
practitioners — not managers — at the advanced skill level of cybersecurity.
While cybersecurity managers help identify what cybersecurity policies and
frameworks could be implemented, CASP+ certified professionals figure out
how to implement solutions within those policies and frameworks.
Unlike other certifications, CASP+ covers both security architecture and
engineering – CASP+ is the only certification on the market that qualifies
technical leaders to assess cyber readiness within an enterprise, and design
and implement the proper solutions to ensure the organization is ready for
the next attack.
