CompTIA is a not-for-profit trade association with the purpose of advancing the interests of IT professionals and IT channel organizations and its industry-leading IT certifications are an important part of that mission. CompTIA’s Security+ certification is a foundation-level certificate designed for IT administrators with two years’ experience whose job role is focused on system security. The CompTIA Security+ exam will certify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to assist with cybersecurity duties in small and large organizations. These duties include assessments and monitoring; secure network, host, app, and cloud provisioning; data governance; and incident analysis and response.

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 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.
