CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications, or equivalent knowledge, have around 24 months' experience of networking support or IT administration. It is not necessary that you pass the Network+ exam before completing Security+ certification, but it is recommended.
Additional introductory courses or work experience in application development and programming, or in network and operating system administration for any software platform or system are helpful but not required.
Specifically, it is recommended that you have the following skills and knowledge before starting this course:
- Know the function and basic features of the components of a PC.
- Use Windows Server OS to create and manage files and use basic administrative features (Explorer, Control Panel, Server Manager, and Management Consoles).
- Operate the Linux OS using basic command-line tools.
- Know basic network terminology and functions (such as OSI Model, Topology, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, switches, routers).
- Understand TCP/IP addressing, core protocols, and troubleshooting tools.
CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on troubleshooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents – not just identify them.
Security+ is aimed at IT professionals with job roles such as security engineer, security consultant / specialist, information assurance technician, junior auditor / penetration tester, security administrator, systems administrator, and network administrator.
CompTIA Security+ is approved as an IA baseline certification for the IA workforce as part of the IA Workforce Improvement Program (DoD 8570.01-M) and is included in the State Department Skills Incentive Program. More choose Security+ for DoD 8570 compliance than any other certification.
