Overview: In this course, students will implement, monitor, and troubleshoot infrastructure, application, information, and operational security. Students will prepare for the CompTIA Security+ certification examination (SY0-401).

Prerequisites: After mastering CompTIA’s vendor-neutral approach to Security students may wish to look to a vendor-specific approach to security in a Microsoft of Cisco offering. Additionally students may want to expand their security knowledge by focusing on security policy and procedures in CISSP. For a more targeted approach to Security there is the CEH offering.

To ensure your success in your course, you should possess basic Windows user skills and a fundamental understanding of computer and networking concepts.

CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications, or equivalent knowledge, and six to nine months experience in networking, including configuring security parameters, are strongly recommended.

  • CompTIA Network+ Certification
  • CompTIA A+ Certification
  • Using Microsoft Windows 8.1
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1: Transition from Windows 7


Target Audience: This course is targeted toward the information technology (IT) professional who has networking and administrative skills in Windows®-based Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) networks; familiarity with other operating systems, such as Mac OS X®, Unix, or Linux; and who wants to further a career in IT by acquiring foundational knowledge of security topics; prepare for the CompTIA Security+ certification examination; or use Security+ as the foundation for advanced security certifications or career roles.

Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify the fundamental concepts of computer security.
  • Identify security threats and vulnerabilities.
  • Manage data, application, and host security.
  • Implement network security.
  • Identify and implement access control and account management security measures.
