Hi, I'm Mike Chapple and I'll be your host for this Security+ training program from the Virtual Training Company. This course prepares you for the Security+ examination from CompTIA. Both the certification and this course cover the basic information needed for an entry level information security position. This course is based upon the exam objectives released by CompTIA for use on the Security+ examination beginning in 2011. CompTIA recommends that candidates have at least two years of technical networking experience before sitting for the Security+ examination. You may choose to validate this experience by earning the CompTIA Network+ certification, although this is not a requirement. CompTIA also recommends that candidates for the Security+ credential have some emphasis on security in their technical backgrounds before attempting the examination. The exam itself consists of 100 questions administered by computer with a 90 minute time limit; in order to pass the exam you must score at least 750 points on a scale with the lowest possible score of 100 points and a maximum score of 900 points. The fee for the examination varies by country and is currently $258 in the United States. For more information on the exam and registration information, please see the CompTIA website. The Security+ exam covers six domains of information security, Network Security, Compliance and Operational Security, Threats and Vulnerabilities, Application, Data and Host Security, Access Control and Identity Management and Cryptography. This course will provide you with the information you need to know about each one of these domains in order to earn a passing score on the examination.
