Their vendor-neutral certifications are accepted worldwide as a trusted indicator competency in the field and we are proud to offer CompTIA Network+, Security+, CySA+, PenTest+ and CASP+ under the ELCAS scheme.
Here is the basics you need to know about information/ cyber security certifications we offer under ELCAS funding.
CompTIA Security+ (S+) certification establishes the foundational knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. The exam has performance-based questions and emphasises the hands-on practical skills used by junior IT auditors, system administrators, network administrators and security administrators
CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification assesses the skills needed to apply behavioural analytics to networks to improve the overall state of IT security. The certification covers tools such as packet sniffers, intrusion detection systems (IDS) and security information and event management (SIEM) systems. The security analyst role has gained more importance, making these skills essential for most organisations.
CompTIA PenTest+ focuses on offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment. It involves launching attacks on systems, discovering the vulnerabilities and managing them and is intended for cybersecurity professionals tasked with identifying, exploiting, reporting and managing vulnerabilities on a network.
CompTIA Advanced Security Practioner (CASP+) proves mastery of cybersecurity skills required at the 5- to 10-year experience level. CASP+ is the pinnacle of cybersecurity certifications and includes performance-based questions. It is intended for those who wish to remain immersed in hands-on enterprise security, incident response and architecture, for example, as opposed to strictly managing cybersecurity policy and frameworks.
