Certified Security Principles



Security Principles are your first line of defense, but often the last box checked! The IT world never stands still! Therefore, neither can IT security. It does not matter if we are talking about the implementation of IoT devices or cloud services, security is important. According to a recent study, the top source of security incidents within a company are the current employees!
The Certified Security Principles, C)SP, course is going to prepare you for security across the entire environment including understanding risk management, identity and access control, network and data security. This is just a short list of everything that we cover within this course, which will include new technologies like IoT and cloud services. This course is intended to prepare you to become a benefit to any company that is attempting to improve its security posture!

The C)SP is a Foundational Part of Several Career Paths

We suggest that you master the concepts in the C)SP before moving into 300 level in the Management, Response and Recovery, or Auditing Career Paths. This 5 Day Instructor Led course will introduce you to many of the key concepts you will need to succeed in the other courses.
