CompTIA Network+ (N10-007)/Security+ (SY0-501) Combo 8-Day Course

Overview

This 8-day combination course focuses on the Network+ (N10-007)/Security+ (SY0-501) content in a boot-camp style and is designed for those who have less time to train and are concerned about meeting budgets. The first 4 days are dedicated to Network+ (N10-007) content exclusively. The second 4 days are dedicated to Security+ (SY0-501) content. If students plan on certifying, it is highly recommended that they study for 1-2 week’s minimum before taking the exam, unless they are highly experienced in IT security and networking principles.

None. It is highly recommended to achieve A+ Certification first.

CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501)

Course Description

In this course, students will implement, monitor, and troubleshoot infrastructure, application, information, and operational security. Students will prepare for the CompTIA Security+ certification examination (SY0-501).

Audience Profile

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 macOS®, Unix, or Linux; and who wants to further a career in IT by acquiring foundational knowledge of security topics; preparing for the CompTIA Security+ certification examination; or using Security+ as the foundation for advanced security certifications or career roles.

Learning Objectives:

In this course, you will implement information security across a variety of different contexts. You will:

•Identify the fundamental components of information security.

•Analyze risk.

•Identify various threats to information security.

•Conduct security assessments to detect vulnerabilities.

•Implement security for hosts and software.

•Implement security for networks.

•Manage identity and access.

•Implement cryptographic solutions in the organization.

•Implement security at the operational level.

•Address security incidents.

•Ensure the continuity of business operations in the event of an incident.

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.
