CompTIA Security+

The CompTIA Security+ certification is a globally recognized credential that validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. It covers essential principles for network security and risk management – making it an important stepping stone in an IT security career.

If you are about to start working towards the Security+ IT certification from CompTIA, I would strongly recommend downloading the exam objectives from the CompTIA website. However, below are my study notes, mainly, so I always have the information to hand, but they may be of use if you are planning on taking the exam yourself at some stage.
