Who Should Take Security+ Training?
This Security+ training is considered foundational-level CompTIA training, which means it was designed for project managers with 1 to 3 years of experience -- or no experience at all. This Security+ course is valuable for new or aspiring IT professionals, experienced project managers looking to validate foundational skills, and non-technical professionals.
Security tools user training. Security+ training is not exclusively beneficial for IT personnel. If you work in a non-technical role, much of the responsibility for keeping networks and systems safe falls on you. By showing you how to do that, this advanced cybersecurity training makes you a better employee all-around.
New or aspiring IT professionals. If you're a new or aspiring project manager -- especially if your job involves working with a digital or development team, odds are good you're not a thoroughly trained IT professional, but you will be interacting with IT personnel throughout your career. If you're not trained and familiar with digital threats, cryptography, or vulnerabilities, you could prove to be a liability to your team and organization.
