Course Introduction

This course is designed to prepare the student for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) certification exam and focuses on knowledge of security concepts, tools, and procedures to react to security incidents; it ensures that security personnel are anticipating security risks and guarding against them. Upon completion of this course, students will gain knowledge and skills required to identify risk, to participate in risk mitigation activities, and to provide infrastructure, application, information, and operational security. In addition, students will learn how to apply security controls to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability, identify appropriate technologies and products, troubleshoot security events and incidents, and operate with an awareness of applicable policies, laws, and regulations.

Course Prerequisites

CompTIA A+ and Network+ certification or equivalent technical networking experience with an emphasis on security is recommended.

Course Notes

A student textbook is provided for on-going reference. This course consists of 26 graded endof- module quizzes and a final exam. Participants who receive 75% or higher on their final grade will receive a certificate. Hands-on practice labs are included in this course. By completing these labs students will gain practical aspects of the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) exam objectives. Due to the dynamic nature of the IT industry, job success mandates that an individual learns not only the theory, but also obtains the skill to locate resources that provide answers and help solve problems on the job. We encourage our students to develop research and study skills that will help them make the transition from the classroom to the work environment. Independent thinking is required of anyone considering IT courses and a career in Information Technology.
