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 trouble-shooting 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.

Our CompTIA Security+ course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London and will be run over five consecutive days. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the week. We also offer private training at a location of your choice or via Virtual Classroom.
