Neither technologies nor policies alone offer effective information security. The IT industry must have a well-trained work force to effectively combat hackers and decrease financial losses. Security is on everyone’s mind these days.
As organizations scramble to upgrade information security measures and academic institutions struggle to meet the growing demand for IT security programs, the need for computer security education and related certification credentials has never been more apparent.
In response to these needs and industry support for a foundation-level network security certification, CompTIA has accelerated the development of its new Security+ exam, now set for release in December. MicroTrain Technologies is proud to be one of the first in this area to offer this new CompTIA certification.
CompTIA’s Security+ Certification is a great first step for individuals seeking to enter this growing field, and it lays the groundwork for other security certifications. As we look to the future of information security in the IT industry and academics, it is clear that demand for specialized programs, certifications, and in turn, experienced graduates will continue to increase. The technology community identifies Security+ as the perfect way to validate your knowledge of information security
