With the fast development in the IT field, we see that technology has become more accessible. But despite numerous benefitsthat technology brings, it has a major drawback too: lack of security. The number of unethical hackers and virus developers is on the increase which means that the threat to your system increases as well. This is why certified persons who can deal with security issues related to IT are on demand. What is CompTIA Security+ certification? CompTIA Security+ credential is a worldwide accepted standard that gives validation to your basic cybersecurity skills. It not only tests your knowledge on a theoretical level but also evaluates your proficiency in applications. Why CompTIA Security+? The simple reason is that CompTIA Security+ offers more than any other cybersecurity credential. Due to the fact that Security+ is vendor-neutral, certified individuals can work with a wide range of different technologies and tools. This means that they are not limited to any particular vendor (such as Microsoft or Cisco). CompTIA Security+ tests your skills in the practical application of the knowledge you've gained. CompTIA also makes sure that their content is always upgraded to suit the newest developments, which means that you will be ready to face any new types of threats. Hence, a person with a PrepAway.biz has their skills up to date and validated. What’s more, Security+ certification has officially been approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements and is up to the ISO 17024 standards. But like most CompTIA credentials, Security+ is only valid within three years of receipt. If you want to renew the certification, you can take part in training sessions and classes offered by CompTIA. CompTIA Security+ exam SY0-501 exam will test your skills in securing systems and networks, performing risk analysis, and taking appropriate mitigations needed when a dangerous situation arises. The exam includes a maximum of 90 multiple-choice and performance-based questions and lasts 90 minutes. On a scale of 100-900, the passing score for this exam is 750. Preparing for CompTIA Security+ exam To prepare for the exam, first you need to learn the content that you will be tested on. For that purpose, CompTIA offers CertMaster E-Learning, E-books, and classroom training. These resources are trustworthy since they are produced by the association itself. In addition to these resources, you can find many other online training materials such as videos, forums, exam dumps, etc. Tips for good CompTIA Security+ score ● Create a study plan The first and most essential part is to plan ahead. Without a plan, things don't really get done as efficiently, and that's a fact. Create your own day-by-day study plan to gradually explore all the necessary Security+ materials. ● Practice Practicing what you learn is one of the best things you can do to familiarize yourself with the content. Being familiar with the test materials reduces the time taken to recall answers. ● Know what to expect Go through as many resources as possible. Take time to compare and contrast the content. By doing this, you can know what to expect in your exam and you can also know what the examiners expect of you. ● Practice exams Doing a lot of mock exams is a good way to test your level. Usually, the scores you get for these tests are a prediction for your actual exam scores. You can find practice exams at sites like PrepAway. PrepAway does not just present questions but also provides answers and explanations. ● Use reliable online resources only There are many online resources that claim to make you pass CompTIA Security+ exam with great scores, but not all of those resources are really reliable. So, you have to be vigilant and be on the lookout for such scam sites/videos that might ruin your scores. Of course, there are sites like PrepAway that have received many good reviews and are actually reliable. PrepAway offers Q&As, training courses, and study guides. The best books to help you get through CompTIA Security+ exam Following is a list of the books that will help and guide you to an exceptional score for CompTIA Security+ test: 1. Security+ Guide to Network Security Fundamentals written by Mark Ciampa. It's a very informative book that manages to keep the reader engaged and contains a list of terms and definitions at the end of every chapter making things much easier for you. 2. CompTIA Security+ Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide written by Darril Gibson. This is a great book that covers all the aspects of SY0-501. It also provides a set of practice questions and thorough explanations. 3. CompTIA Security+ Certification Kit: Exam SY0-501 authored by Emmett Dulaney. The author has very efficiently ordered the content so that it progresses smoothly without confusing the reader. Conclusion Everyone has a degree nowadays. And getting a degree itself will not provide you with a job in cybersecurity,not to mention the high salary.To get some form of recognition to yourself, you need to give your interviewer an incentive. There’s no need to say that there are many institutions that offer various kinds of certifications but not all of them are recognized worldwide. If you need to get a valid and acknowledged certification, then CompTIA Security+ is the best choice.
