New CompTIA CASP training course helps build the career of senior information security managers


IT Governance Ltd, the global cyber security training provider, has announced the launch of its CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) training course. This five-day classroom session delivers the practical knowledge required to understand and implement effective information security controls in complex enterprise organisations. It also provides complete preparation to ensure that delegates pass the CASP examination on their first attempt.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, explains, “CASP was launched by CompTIA in 2011 and is intended to be a 'master' level qualification. Designed to build on the knowledge obtained from the CompTIA Security+ study programme, CASP enables candidates to learn how to apply critical thinking across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to implement solutions that directly map to enterprise drivers.”
He continues, “CompTIA qualifications are highly respected in the industry, and the entry-level certificates such as A+, Network+ and Security+ are recommended internationally as the choice for all professionals who wish to develop their career in technical IT. The same pragmatic and straightforward approach to course content and the structure of exams has been adopted for CASP. Delegates who already hold CompTIA Security+ will find the CASP exam relatively easy to pass first time.
“CASP is approved by the US Department of Defense (DoD 8570) to meet IA technical, management and system architect/engineer certification requirements. While this may not be directly relevant to working in non-US locations, delegates should bear in mind that their careers may one day take them to the US, and that large companies like Dell, HP and IBM demand that their advanced information security personnel all hold CASP.”
The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) training course is next scheduled to run in London on 20-24 April. While there are no formal prerequisites, CASP is aimed at IT professionals with a minimum of ten years’ experience in IT administration and at least five years of practical implementation of information security in an organisation. It is also recommended that, if possible, students already hold a CompTIA Security+ certificate.
