Certification Overview:

CompTIA Security + credential designates skillful experts in IT security. The security+ includes knowledge about basic principles of managing risk and securing network. Identity management, access control, data security, network security, host security and cryptography are some of the core topics of the exam including the deterrent techniques and appropriate mitigation to address vulnerabilities and network attacks. Security issues regarding SCADA, BYOD and cloud computing are asked in the CompTIA security+ exam.

A single exam (SYO-401) is required to pass Security A+ certification. The exam includes 100 questions to be solved in 99 minutes. As claimed by CompTIA there are above 45,000 people across the globe that have applied and earned the CompTIA security+ certification for its increasing demand in the IT market. To candidates, it is recommended to have at least 2 years of experience in security related fields to ensure passing at least 75% of the exam with average difficulty. The Secuirty+ exam is also counted as an elective MCSE requirement as an alternate to MCSA (Microsoft security specializations)

-Security Engineer

-It Technician

CompTIA security+ covers the cover topic and information similar to that of CISSP. The subjects that require information to pass the security+ exams prove useful in the higher level security exams building strong foundation with the basic concepts. A career building introduction is provided to the candidates who clear this certification.

Other than that, Security+ exam is recognized by other education institutes and vendors as an elective certification. Most institutes transfer the credits of this certification into the course credits. You can earn credits by maintaining this certification (keeping it valid) for higher level certifications. DOD 8570 is a set standard for government jobs and contracts for various IT job positions. To have any of these jobs it is important to pass the security+ certification to meet the DOD 8570 standard. A government professional then can have the most opportunities and pathways in IT field due to the experience and training.

One of the most significant benefits of this certification is that it is vendor neutral. Unlike other certifications that are based on vendor repute system for instance Microsoft based or Cisco based certification, Security+ requires no specific vendor and is recognized by every institute regardless of what hardware or software proprietary behind. This benefit allows candidates to choose their suitable vendors and training programs.

Associated exam:

To apply for CompTIA Security+ exam, clearing the Network+ certification is important. It is also a one day performance based exam with networking related subjects and its application. Candidates can only apply for the Security+ certification (SYO-401) if they have obtained the Network+ certification.

Pre requisites

The security exam certification requires 2 years experience in IT industry with training or experience at security and networking. Although many candidates do take the exam without experience, having a network+ certification is a must to clear Security+.

Examination overview:

Expert Review:

CompTIA Security+ provides the knowledge IT professionals must have. The value of the exam keeps increasing with the advancements in IT technology. Not just are the IT professionals who obtain CompTIA Security+ more confident about their skills, but have the training and experience of various IT subjects. If individuals are not certified, they do not have enough skills and knowledge.
