The Security+ Certification course teaches material that maps to all skill and knowledge objectives for the CompTIA Security+ certification exam (SY0-401).
Skills the student will learn include identifying access control and authentication methods, identifying services provided by encryption, and managing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
Upon completing this course, the student will better understand common types of network-based attacks, and how to respond to them. The student will also learn how to harden operating systems, secure remote access, and ensure physical security. In addition to teaching firewall and intrusion-detection technologies, this course teaches critical incident response and system forensics concepts.
This course also addresses essential auditing and documentation practices that help measure significant gaps between security policy and actual practice. Finally, the student will learn about the essentials of a disaster recovery plan, how to ensure business continuity, and how to create and manage a security policy.
Throughout this course, case studies help ensure that best practices are employed throughout the network using the latest technologies, including wireless implementations.
