Security+ Training Duration:

5 days

Audience:

Employees of federal, state and local governments; and businesses working with the government.

Prerequisites:

Although it is not required, we suggest having CompTIA Network+ or equivalent certification and/or approximately 2 years industry experience.

Course Description:

The Security+ training session explores industry-wide topics including communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, access control, authentication, external attack and operational and organization security.  Information Assurance (IA) professionals will benefit from this seminar. The Security+ certification is on the approved list of certifications that meets the DoD D8570.1 requirements.  In short, the directive requires that many military personnel, government personnel, and contractors that have their hands in the networks of the military and or government must have certain certifications.  Security+ is one of these.
