Security+ Exam Preparation Package

A great certification to demonstrate basic security knowledge is the CompTIA Security+ certification. Unlike other certifications, such as the CISSP or the CISM, the Security+ doesn’t have any mandatory experience or prerequisites. CompTIA also suggests that Security+ candidates obtain the CompTIA Network+ certification, but they don’t require it.

The Security+ is a mandated certification for the US Department of Defense and is accredited by both the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Another benefit of the Security+ is that it’s vendor-neutral, instead choosing to focus on security topics and technologies in general, without limiting its focus to any one vendor and their approach.

There is only one exam required to earn the Security+ certification. That exam (exam SY0-301) is comprised of 100 questions and is provided over a 90-minute period. The grading scale is from 100 to 900, with a passing score of 750, or roughly 83% (although that’s just an estimate because the scale changes somewhat over time).
