CompTIA Security+ 2008: Threat Mitigation
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
The central goals of network security are integrity, confidentiality, and availability. Even the most secure data systems are threatened on a daily basis, providing the challenge to administrators as well as users to maintain security. A decision must be made as to whether or not the cost of adding additional security outweighs possible losses that may be incurred with current configurations. Companies are constantly deciding how much risk is acceptable. This course introduces methods used to perform core system maintenance, manage viruses and spyware, securing browser software, and identify and mitigate social engineering threats. 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.
