Why study this course

CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills necessary to improve baseline security readiness and incident response by applying current best practices for preventing and addressing today’s threats.

CompTIA Security+ validates core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role, and emphasises vendor-neutral, hands-on practical skills. This will ensure the security professional is better prepared to problem solve a wider variety of today’s complex issues faced by organisations, such as improving baseline security readiness and incident response by applying best practices for preventing and addressing the latest attacks, threats, and vulnerabilities.

This five-day instructor-led training course will help you prepare for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-601) exam.
