There is no such thing as a little freedom. Either you are all free, or you are not free.”
– Walter Cronkite

CompTIA’s Security+ certification has long been a top choice for those looking for their introduction into the cyber security industry—it provides the fundamental knowledge for securing a network and managing risk. It also is approved by the U.S Department of Defense to meet information assurance technical and management certification requirements, so it’s a pretty huge distinction and in great demand. The certification will help people enter into the cyber security field, and will validate a fundamental cyber security skill set. Previously, Security+ training classes were expensive, but now, at Cybrary, our online class is entirely free, forever!

About the Online CompTIA Security+ Training

The Security+ curriculum covers many areas of network security, including cloud security, encryption, security protocols, system security and network infrastructure. Our free online CompTIA Security+ training is ideal for network administrators, security consultants, security engineers, security analysts and people looking to enter into cyber security. Learn about general security concepts, basics of cryptography, communications security and operational and organizational security. With the increase of major security breaches that are occurring, security experts are needed now more than ever. 

Looking for a return (on your FREE investment)? Individuals who are Security+ certified are likely to make approximately $80,000 a year (in the USA)! Possession of this certification shows employers that you are fundamentally skilled in handling network security and risk management issues. While there are no prerequisites to this course, it’s recommended you’ve completed Network+ training and have taken the exam in order to be most successful in Security+.

“Door locks keep the good people out. The bad guys will break a window.”   For the life of me, I can’t remember where I heard that quote, but it’s an important one to remember when approaching cyber security problems. Most “preventative” security measures (the kinds of things that make us feel safe) are no ...
