Recommendations

The CompTIA Security+ certification is an entry-level security credential for IT professionals with two years of networking experience. It is recommended that you have the CompTIA Network+ certification, but professionals without it who have real-world experience have taken the course and successfully earned the Security+ certification.

This course is recommended for security architects, security engineers, security consultants/specialists, information assurance technicians, security administrators, systems administrators and network administrators.
