Students seeking CASP+ certification should have at least 10 years of experience in IT management, with at least 5 years of hands-on technical security experience.

To be fit for this advanced course, you should have at least a foundational knowledge of information

security. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Knowledge of identity and access management (IAM) concepts and common implementations, such as authentication factors and directory services.
  • Knowledge of cryptographic concepts and common implementations, such as Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) and public key infrastructure (PKI).
  • Knowledge of computer networking concepts and implementations, such as the TCP/IP model and configuration of routers and switches.
  • Knowledge of common security technologies used to safeguard the enterprise, such as anti-malware solutions, firewalls, and VPNs.

You can obtain this level of knowledge by taking the CompTIA® Security+® (Exam SY0-501) course or by
