Security is one of the fastest-growing fields in IT. CompTIA offers a Security+ certification which not only ensures that candidates will apply knowledge of security concepts, tools, and procedures to react to security incidents, but also are anticipating risks and guarding against them.
In 2011, CompTIA released a new revision of the Security+ exam: SY0-301. To prepare candidates, Pearson IT Certification has authorized materials available. Written by expert David Prowse, the new CompTIA Security+ SYO-301 Authorized Certification Guide, 2nd Edition offers a comprehensive self-study tool complete with end-of-chapter case studies, hands-on video exercises, sample tests, quizzes and more!
About the exam - it’s recommended that candidates have CompTIA Network+ certification and two years of technical networking experience, with an emphasis on security. The exam has 100 questions and must be completed in a 90-minute time period, which leads us to today’s trivia question: What is a passing score for the CompTIA Security + exam?
