CompTIA Security+ is recognised by employers and trusted by technology professionals as a certification that validates the hands-on skills needed to perform core cybersecurity functions and problem solve on a wide variety of issues. It also serves as a springboard to a career dedicated to cybersecurity for many tech pros.
John McGlinchey, Executive Vice President for Global Certification at CompTIA said, “you need look no further than the daily headlines about cyber-attacks and data breaches to understand the criticality for organisations to have robust cyber defences in place.
“These defences begin with having a team of technology professionals trained and certified in the latest cybersecurity countermeasures, and that training and certification starts with CompTIA Security+.”
Organisations across a spectrum of industries – professional services, finance, health care, information technology, telecommunications, government, and the United States military – rely on CompTIA Security+ as a skills benchmark for their cybersecurity staffs.
CompTIA Security+ emphasises hands-on practical skills in areas such as risk management, risk mitigation, threat management, intrusion detection, and other critical knowledge domains.
The certification is unique in its reliance on performance-based exam questions. Test-takers are challenged to demonstrate in real-time that they can identify and mitigate the same types of security threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities they’ll face on the job.
