Course Description

Diploma in CompTIA Security+

IBAT College, Dublin

Computer security is becoming more and more important as the threat landscape evolves and increases in sophistication and scale.  Cybercriminals are growing in their attacks on a variety of industry sectors, including the banking sector, health sector and many others. “In Ireland, cybercrime is double global levels, with four out of 10 organisations failing to assess the risks”, and “almost half of businesses (49pc) reporting crime in the last two years”, (Silicon Republic, 2018).

IBAT College are a CompTIA partner.

CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills needed to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. Security+ emphasizes hands-on practical skills, ensuring that you as a security professional are better prepared to problem solve a wider variety of issues.

Security+ focuses on the latest trends and techniques in risk management, risk mitigation, threat management and intrusion detection. It addresses requirements for a Junior IT Auditor/Penetration Tester job role, in addition to job roles for Systems Administrator, Network Administrator, and Security Administrator.

In referring to the importance of cyber-security certifications, Simplilearn emphasised the CompTIA certification as a good choice for those relatively new to the field.

Those who successfully complete the programme can sit the CompTIA Security+ SYO-501 Exam.
