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.

About the instructorMark Jacob

CCSI: Cisco Certified Systems Instructor

Mark is a network administrator with over 15 years’ experience and expert in specialized instruction methods, daily review and refresh, hands-on lab immersion. Mark is also a certified Cisco specialist and uses his current day-to-day experiences to provide students in his classes with real-life scenarios and equip them with the knowledge required to administer TCP/IP networks built with Cisco hardware — and do it well! Selecting routing protocols, setting up IP addresses and performing subnetting — Mark teaches students straightforward methods to accomplishing Cisco network administrator skills. Students are amazed at how “easy” much-feared tasks such as subnetting can be once they learn Mark’s methods, and the proof is in their success, passing exams to obtain certifications. Mark’s passion for engineering led him to the Information Technology profession after a career with the U.S. Postal Service. Taking classes on his own time and starting out as an unpaid intern, Mark has a drive that is clearly a bonus to students in his classes. A volunteer tutor of young students during his off-hours, Mark says: “I enjoy seeing the light go on in somebody as they learn. If I teach it to you on a Wednesday morning, by Wednesday evening, you can do it.”
