Earning CompTIA Security+ proves that you have the knowledge necessary to combat security risks at your company. More than 80 percent of respondents to the 2007 CompTIA Security Study believe that security training for the IT staff has greatly improved IT security. Increased awareness and the ability of the staff to identify potential security risks proactively are most frequently identified as being the key benefits of training.
The study also found that human error, either alone or in combination with a technical malfunction, was blamed for almost 75 percent of IT security breaches (73.8 percent), with an average cost of more than $360,000 over a 12-month period.
CompTIA Security+ is a vendor-neutral certification that validates knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security, and general security concepts. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that is taught at colleges, universities and commercial training centers around the world.
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.
CompTIA Security+ is recognized by the technology community as a valuable credential that proves competency with information security. Major corporations such as Sun, IBM/Tivoli Software Group, Symantec, Motorola, Hitachi Electronics Services and Verisign value the CompTIA Security+ certification and recommend or require it of their IT employees.
