Hacker with their hood up

Cyber security is often seen as one of the most exciting and interesting sectors within IT. Protecting our data and networks is mission critical for every organisation and the threats are only growing. With a lack of Cyber talent in the industry, the Security+ is a great progression route into IT. Pre-requisite for many organisations and within the United States a pre-requisite for any contract with the Department of Defence due to being part of the DOD8570 standard.

Candidates sitting the Security+ (SY0-601) exam will demonstrate baseline security standards as well as demonstrating hands on practical skills required in the industry.

The exam is split into five core domains that broadly cover Cyber Security. These domains are:

Security+ (SY0-601)

  • Attacks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities
  • Architecture and Design
  • Implementation
  • Operations and Incident Response
  • Governance, Risk, and Compliance

During the course you will explore how to utilise core technical skills in risk assessment and management, incident response, forensics, enterprise networks, hybrid/cloud operations, and security controls as well as how to assess the security posture of an enterprise environment and recommend and implement appropriate security solutions. You will cover how to monitor and secure hybrid environments, how to operate with an awareness of applicable laws and policies (including principles of governance, risk, and compliance) and how to identify, analyse, and respond to security events and incidents.
