    Taking this free course facilitates the introduction of basic information systems security principles and the required knowledge to get prepared and be successful at the Security+ exam. Information Security is on the front burners for many organizations today and they seek candidates that have the Security+ knowledge and certification.




    According to CompTIA themselves the Security+ exam “covers the most important foundational principles for securing a network and managing risk”. In practice, the Security+ is a base level computer security certification that is the gateway to understanding the principals and concepts of keeping computers, networks, and data secure. Our Security+ course follows the exam objectives for the SY0-401 which you can download in pdf form to look at in detail what is covered here: http://bit.ly/1xAMGnQ

    The Security+ Certification is not an extremely intensive exam as far as technical hands on knowledge goes. While there are some simulations on the exam that require some technical knowledge, just passing the Security+ exam will not give you an extremely technically detailed understanding of how to configure security settings. More so, the Security+ certification focuses on security concepts and best practices so you have an understanding of computer security in general. This is not to say that you shouldn’t learn the technical knowledge! This is critical in actually applying security concepts in real world situations and will help immensely in passing the exam. Setting up your own test lab or going through the practice labs with one of the lab providers we recommend will help you with getting some hands on practice.

    In short, go to the link above and take a look at all the objectives listed in the pdf. That will let you know everything you can expect to learn about.




    I am going through this course with hopes to get my security+ certification. I would just like to say thanks for offering this class for free. There is no way I would be able to afford these classes, but the certification tests I can swing so thanks again for this. Oh and By the way John makes this easy to understand for all levels of skill, from beginner to mid-level.




    I’m glad this is helping you. Let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you.
