CYBR202 - Information Security II

Continues building a foundation in network security. Learn theory and concepts, cryptography, encryption algorithms, communication and remote access, policy and incident response. This is the second course in a series of two to prepare for the CompTIA Security+ certification. Passing a professional IT certification requires many additional hours of study before and after the course lecture. Expect to spend a significant number of hours studying before you take a CompTIA or any other IT professional certification.
