About this Course

PLEASE NOTE: Once the CompTIA Security+ course changes, I will update this course and upload new lectures reflecting the new certification.

This CompTIA Security+ course will show you to harden, protect and enhance your network to where it would lessen the possibility of a bridge in security and allow you to recover your network promptly.  

The course will also prepare the student to take and pass the Security+ certification.

For those already in the field, this Security+ course will enhance your knowledge of security within your network.

Those taking this course will become familiar with the terminology for this certification and will allow the student to implement security features.

Once the student passes the CompTIA Security+ certification exam, they will also receive a letter from the US Department of Defence (DoD) certifying that he/she meets and fulfills Directive 8570.01-M requirements. Having this certification is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).

Security+ is a foundational, vendor-neutral IT security knowledge and skills certification that is also government approved and is globally recognised.

"According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Security Specialists, Administrators and Managers"

Aquiring the Security+ certification will validate the holder's security expertise credentials and can provide substantial earnings that if combined with a CCNA certification, then the sky's the limit!

As you can imagine, the Security+ certification can open doors and new opportunities in the IT world and can only enhance your knowledge, career and financial status.

Please note:  In the coming weeks new lectures will continuously be added to this course, so look out for announcements on these new lectures.
