The CompTIA Security+ course is designed to teach students security basics and prepare them for testing to become Security+ certified. The Security+ covers many vendor neutral topics including different types of threats and attacks, networking technologies and tools, secure design and architecture, identity and access management, risk assessment and management, and finishes up with Cryptography and Public Key Infrastructure. This covered everything from the ever-expanding virtualization of various computing systems to industry management of smart devices.

Each of the modules of this course is designed to align with the official objectives of this certification and expand past the scope of the certification to allow for real life application. They give the student some real life examples of various attacks or security practices that they can both apply in real life or use to further their understanding of a course objective.
