CompTIA Security+

Course ID


Course Description

CompTIA Security+ validates knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security, and general security concepts. This practical hands-on course will teach students the fundamental principles of installing and configuring computer and network security systems.


An introductory course in a Windows operating system, or equivalent skills and knowledge, is required. CompTIA A+ certification, or the equivalent skills and knowledge, is helpful but not required.


This course is intended for students wishing to qualify with CompTIA Security+ and understanding the core concepts of information security. The qualification is aimed primarily at networking professionals, but because security is vital to all levels and job roles within an organization, it will also benefit PC support analysts, application developers, and senior managers in accounting, sales, product development, and marketing.
