Security+ Certification Boot Camp

Course Description/Agenda

CompTIA's Security+ is the premier vendor-neutral security certification and is included in the approved list of certifications to meet DoD Directive 8570.1 requirements. Our Security+ courseware has received CompTIA Authorized Quality Curriculum (CAQC) approval. The CompTIA CAQC symbol assures you that all test objectives are covered in the training material.

This course is your one source for exam preparation and includes pre-class online access to:

  • Security+ reading plan
  • Security+ study guide
  • Security+ certification practice exams

During class, you'll have access to:

  • Security+ student manual
  • Additional Security+ practice exam questions
  • Comprehension exercises, study digest, and quick reference card
  • Security+ exam administered on the last day

In this course, you will perform over 80 hands-on activities to reinforce Security+ concepts such as managing browser security, encrypting and digitally signing e-mail messages, and installing and configuring vulnerability scanners and intrusion detection systems. You will establish the essential components of a public key infrastructure, including starting a certificate authority, granting and revoking certificates, and configuring a secure web server using SSL. You will configure group policies and access control methods for restricting access to file shares. You will assess computer security using a baseline analyzer, and you will test user security by attempting to crack passwords and scan systems for vulnerable ports.
