Prepare to answer questions from the threats and vulnerabilities domain of the CompTIA Security+ Exam (SY0-401)—and get the skills to assess and prevent attacks on your own organization's systems.
- Hi, I'm Mike Chapple, and I'd like to welcome you to our CompTIA Security+ Threats and Vulnerabilities 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, threats and vulnerabilities. In this course, we'll be focusing on different types of malware, and how you can protect your systems against software-based threats, networking attacks that jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information and systems, social engineering techniques that attackers use to fool your employees into undermining your organization's security controls, application attacks that attempt to defeat web application security, and ways that you can detect threats and vulnerabilities in your environment and mitigate their effects.
The information you learn in this course will help you pass the Security+ exam, and also provide a critical foundation for your career in information security. All right, let's get rolling.
