CompTIA Security+ 2008: Messaging, User, and Role Security
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
E-mail and instant messaging have taken over from snail mail, memos, and even to a large extent from phone conversations in modern office environments. The challenge is to ensure that these forms of communication are secure, readily accessible, and that the identity of both parties involved can be confirmed. This course analyzes and demonstrates the methods for securing e-mail and instant messages along with creating security on the Active Directory domain and client computers so that these forms of communication can be done with confidentiality, integrity, availability and nonrepudiation. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Security+ (2008 Edition) certification exam.
Organizations involved in IT services or training that need to have personnel qualified for onwards delivery of IT support or training; businesses that will need up-to-date Security+ training for their own internal networking support purposes; individuals who are personally interested in establishing credentials for the benefit of their own career prospects.
Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Security+ candidates have at least two years on-the-job networking experience with an emphasis on security. The CompTIA Network+ certification is also recommended.
