CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career.
- Proactively implement sound security protocols to mitigate security risks
- Quickly respond to security issues
- Retroactively identify where security breaches may have occurred
- Design a network, on-site or in the cloud, with security in mind
Since Security+ is internationally recognized and is not specific to a certain security product, having this baseline security certification allows you a wider breadth of career opportunities, including those abroad. The exam itself is hands-on and performance-based, which makes the knowledge and skills learned more practical and applicable at your job.
Security+ keeps up with latest trends and developments in network security. The current Security+ certification covers Junior IT Auditor/Penetration Tester job role, including previous job roles for Systems Administrator, Network Administrator, and Security Administrator.
