- [Mike] Hi, I'm Mike Chapple and I'd like to welcome you to our CompTIA Security+ Technology and Tools 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: technologies and tools. This domain accounts for 22% 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 installing and configuring network components to support enterprise security, using tools to assess the security posture of an organization, trouble shooting common security issues, analyzing and interpreting output from security technologies, deploying mobile devices securely, and implementing secure protocols. 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.
In addition to the information that I cover in this course, I encourage you 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 keep you on track with your test preparation. Alright, let's get rolling.
