This course provides everything you need to get your cybersecurity training and industry certification. It includes a full, asynchronous preparation course with practice labs and practice exams as well as a voucher to take the CompTIA Security+ certificate exam.
CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required in any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on trouble-shooting to ensure security professionals have practical 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 Department of Defense to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
