Experienced IT professionals. It’s said there’s no such thing as an entry-level security professional. Most security professionals start in support, networking, or systems administration before advancing to their first security role. If that’s the route you’re trying to take, this Security+ training was designed for you, too. The basic terminology may be review for you, but the rest contextualizes the networking and systems concepts you may already know through a security lens. Security+ is a great place to start before attempting more advanced security training.
