CompTIA On-Demand: CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) Certification Training Course Outline

*** This is an On-Demand (self-study) Course, 180-day, 24/7 access via the internet***
(Applicable State and Local taxes may be added for On-Demand purchases, depending on your location.)

You may take this course at any time; there are no set dates, however, the 6-month course access period begins at time of purchase.

This On-Demand (self-study) course includes hours of videos, demonstrations, lab exercises and printed courseware that will prepare students for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner CAS-004 exam.

In this course, students will learn about cybersecurity architecture, security operations, security engineering and cryptography, and governance, risk, and compliance.

Target Student
This course is for IT professionals in the cybersecurity industry whose primary job responsibility is to secure complex enterprise environments. The target student should have real-world experience with the technical administration of these enterprise environments.

This course is designed for students who are seeking the CompTIA® Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+®) certification and who want to prepare for Exam CAS-004. Students seeking CASP+ certification should have at least 10 years of experience in IT management, with at least 5 years of hands-on technical security experience.

To be fit for this advanced course, you should have at least a foundational knowledge of information security. This includes, but is not limited to:
• Knowledge of identity and access management (IAM) concepts and common implementations, such as authentication factors and directory services.
• Knowledge of cryptographic concepts and common implementations, such as Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) and public key infrastructure (PKI).
• Knowledge of computer networking concepts and implementations, such as the TCP/IP model and configuration of routers and switches.
• Knowledge of common security technologies used to safeguard the enterprise, such as anti-malware solutions, firewalls, and VPNs.
You can obtain this level of knowledge by taking the CompTIA® Security+® (Exam SY0-501) course or by demonstrating this level of knowledge by passing the exam.

Additional Notes Regarding CompTIA Certification Exams
As with most professional IT certifications, many additional hours of study are required before the class (meeting the prerequisites) and after the class (reviewing exam objectives and practice questions). Expect to spend a significant number of hours studying outside of the class before you take a CompTIA or any other IT professional exam.

CompTIA certification exams are very rigorous and challenging. By studying and using the practice exams, you will greatly improve your chances of passing the actual certification exam the first time.
