In your information technology (IT) career, the CompTIA Security+ certification is commonly regarded as the first security certification you should pursue. The CompTIA Security+ exam is a vendor-neutral test that assesses your understanding of industry-standard technologies and processes. It’s a terrific way to get started on additional vendor-specific certifications and jobs. If you’re getting ready to take the Security+ exam, you’ll want to learn everything you can about computer and physical security. The more information you have and the more hands-on experience you obtain, the more prepared you will be to take the exam. uCertify has introduced the CompTIA Security+ course to help prepare you for the certification examination and gain knowledge of security concepts, operating systems, and application systems that will help you get a full understanding of the challenges you’ll face as a security professional. The course provides expertise to:
Identify the components of a security strategy, explain organisational security strategies, and apply fundamental security vocabulary
Plan and conduct risk and vulnerability evaluations
Identify public key infrastructure ideas and explain common cryptography approaches and standards
Identify and classify common network threats, as well as traffic control devices such as firewalls and packet filters
Identify network security devices and use monitoring and detection techniques
Encrypt data in transit and harden networks
Understand network authentication methods and explain authentication factors
Compare access control models, implement file-level access control, and manage account security from a central location
Recognize malware threats, secure hosts and workstations, and protect data throughout its life cycle
Protect mobile devices, embedded and specialised systems, and convergent networks
Describe application attack techniques and ensure that secure development processes are followed
Identify virtualization and cloud technologies as part of the larger company network
Determine social engineering tactics, implement corporate security rules, schedule user training, and select physical security controls
Prepare for disaster using business continuity plans, fault-tolerant systems, data backups, and incident response strategies
The CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 certification exam verifies that the applicant has the knowledge and abilities needed to assess an enterprise’s security posture and recommend and implement relevant security solutions. The candidates are able to monitor and protect hybrid environments, such as cloud, mobile, and IoT; operate in accordance with applicable laws and rules, such as governance, risk, and compliance standards; and recognise, evaluate, and respond to security events and incidents.
