CompTIA CASP CAS-002: Cryptography and Enterprise Storage Concerns

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Cryptography has been used for thousands of years to secure messages and hide information from those who would seek to steal it. In this course, you’ll learn about cryptographic concepts and techniques along with examining the security implications associated with enterprise storage. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CAS-002) certification exam.

Target Audience

Security candidates looking to certify their technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments



Expected Duration

120 min.
