After mastering CompTIA’s vendor-neutral approach to Security students may wish to look to a vendor-specific approach to security in a Microsoft of Cisco offering. Additionally students may want to expand their security knowledge by focusing on security policy and procedures in CISSP. For a more targeted approach to Security there is the CEH offering.

To ensure your success in your course, you should possess basic Windows user skills and a fundamental understanding of computer and networking concepts. CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications, or equivalent knowledge, and six to nine months experience in networking, including configuring security parameters, are strongly recommended.
