CompTIA Security+ Certification Training (Exam SYO-601)

Prepare for the CompTIA Security+ SYO-601 certification while building your cybersecurity knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Our Security+ Certification Prep Course provides the basic knowledge needed to plan, implement, and maintain information security in a vendor-neutral format. This includes risk management, host and network security, authentication and access control systems, cryptography, and organizational security. This course maps to the CompTIA Security+ certification exam (SY0-601). Our Classroom and Classroom Live courses utilize official CompTIA courseware and labs. Objective coverage is marked throughout the course.

What is Security+ Certification?

The Security+ certification is considered to be the minimum level of certification for all IT security positions beyond entry-level. This course delivers the core knowledge required to pass the exam and the skills necessary to advance to an intermediate-level security job.

Students will benefit most from this course if they intend to take the CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 exam.

This course supports a certification that is a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification and meets DoD 8140/8570 training requirements.
