CompTIA Security+ Certification

CompTIA Security+ validates knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security and general security concepts. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that is taught at colleges, universities and commercial training centers around the world. Because human error is the No. 1 cause for a network security breach, CompTIA Security+ is recognized by the technology community as a valuable credential that proves competency with information security.

Career concentrations that benefit from CompTIA Security+ training include Database Development and Administration (knowledge architect, database technician, database analyst, database administrator, data architect, data analyst, project manager); Network Devices (service center technician, PC technician, Help Desk technician, field support technician, customer service technician, project manager); and Network Infrastructure (network support technician, network analyst, network administrator, hardware installation coordinator, computer operator, project manager).
