CompTIA Security+ Certification Training (Exam SYO-601) Course Details:

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.

The new Security+ (SY0-601) is now available. CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) exam retired on July 31, 2021.

Security+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements. Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation, because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.

This Course Supports a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification and meets: DoD Directive 8140 / 8570.01-M IT Training Requirements.
