CompTIA Security+ Certification Support Skills Course
5 Days
This course will prepare students to take the SY0-301 CompTIA Security+ Certification exam, for the most current exam objectives. After taking this course, students will understand the field of network security and how it relates to other areas of information technology. This course also provides the broad-based knowledge necessary to prepare for further study in specialized security fields, or it can serve as a capstone course that gives a general introduction to the field. ObjectivesCompTIA Security+ validates knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security, and general security concepts. This practical "hands-on" 5-day course will teach students the fundamental principles of installing and configuring computer and network security systems. On course completion, students will be able to: • Identify network attack strategies and defenses. • Understand the principles of organizational security and the elements of effective security policies. • Know the technologies and uses of encryption standards and products. • Identify network- and host-based security technologies and practices. • Describe how remote access security is enforced. • Describe the standards and products used to enforce security on web and communications technologies. • Identify strategies for ensuring business continuity, fault tolerance, and disaster recovery. AudienceThis course is intended for students wishing to qualify with CompTIA 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.PrerequisitesIdeally, students should have successfully completed CompTIA Network+ Certification and have around 24 months' experience of networking support. It is not necessary that students pass the CompTIA Network+ exam before completing CompTIA Security+, but this is recommended. It is also recommended but not required for students to complete the CompTIA A+ Certification course. Regardless of whether students have passed CompTIA Network+, it is recommended that they have the following skills and knowledge before starting this course: • Know the function and basic features of the components of a PC. • Use Windows to create and manage files and use basic administrative features (Explorer, Control Panel and Management Consoles). • Basic network terminology (such as OSI Model, Topology, Ethernet, TCP/IP). • TCP/IP addressing, core protocols, and troubleshooting tools.
