The CompTIA Security+ certification is recommended as the first security certification for any candidate. It covers the fundamental knowledge necessary for any cybersecurity role and serves as a stepping stone to intermediate-level cybersecurity positions. The Security+ certification emphasizes hands-on troubleshooting best practices, ensuring that candidates possess the practical security skills required to: - Evaluate the security status of an enterprise environment and suggest and execute suitable security solutions. - Monitor and secure hybrid environments such as cloud, mobile, and IoT. - Operate while being mindful of relevant laws and policies, including the principles of governance, risk, and compliance. - Recognize, analyze, and respond to security events and incidents. CompTIA Security+ certification complies with ISO 17024 standards and meets directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements, which are approved by the U.S. DoD. ANSI accreditation is relied on by regulators and the government because it instills confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Since January 1, 2011, over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been administered.
