With new computer privacy laws in place, it’s more important than ever that Norfolk businesses are prepared for security attacks and know how to respond to them. This issue is so important, in fact, that more and more companies are employing dedicated security personnel who know the laws, requirements and precautions inside and out. With Security+ certification, a network administrator or similar individual has the training and background needed to ensure a company’s information stays safe — and that’s where TrainACE’s Norfolk Security+ Training comes into play.
To obtain Security+ certification, a person must take and pass the official certification exam, which is a comprehensive test of various security topics and issues. With TrainACE’s Norfolk Security+ Training course, participants gain in-depth knowledge about the field in an interactive, user-friendly format, which prepares them for the test. Each student then takes the certification test at the end of the course, which allows him or her to walk away fully trained and certified, ready to serve a local firm.
The need for Security+ certification is only growing, especially because the DoD-8570 directive already requires entry-level and mid-level Information Assurance (I.A.) government employees to have the certification in order to hold their jobs. More and more businesses are following suit, looking for security professionals with official backing.
At TrainACE, we offer 40-hour courses in a bootcamp format, available in daytime, evening or weekend schedules. Led by certified IT security professionals with at least three years of teaching experience in addition to security experience and supplementary certifications, these courses are interactive, made to give students the knowledge and skills needed to perform well on their CompTIA Security+ certification exam.
Subjects Covered in Our Norfolk Security+ Training
Each one of our bootcamp courses covers a wide range of security issues and topics in order to appropriately prepare students for the exam. Among the issues covered are the following:
- General security
- Communications issues
