- [Mike] Hi, I'm Mike Chapple. And I'd like to welcome you to our CompTIA Security+ Identity and Access Management Course. The CompTIA Security+ Certification is one of the most popular entry level certifications for information security professionals. Earning the Security+ certification requires passing an exam, covering six different domains of information security. This course covers one of those domains, identity and access management. This domain accounts for 16% of the questions on the real exam.
And this course is part of a seven course series, designed to prepare you for the Security+ exam. In this course, we'll be focusing on understanding common identity and access management concepts, installing and configuring access and identity services, implementing identity and access management controls, and using common account management processes. The information that you learn in this course will help you pass the Security+ exam and also provide a critical foundation for your career in information security.
In addition to the information I cover in this course, I encourage you to visit my website at certmike.com and join my free Security+ study group. I'll send you exam tips, practice test questions, and reminders, to help keep you on track with your test preparation. All right, let's get rolling.
