CompTIA Security+: Survey of Malicious Activities
Malicious software, also known as malware, comes in a variety of attack vectors and characteristics. The ability to stay current with the different malware and variants is one of the biggest challenges for modern security professionals. Begin this course by exploring malware attacks like ransomware, trojan horses, and logic bombs. Then you will investigate physical and network attacks including brute force, denial-of-service, and credential replay attacks. Next, you will focus on application and cryptographic attacks, such as buffer overflow, privilege escalation, collision, and birthday attacks. Finally, you will take a look at password attacks and discover indicators of compromise, like concurrent session usage, blocked content, and impossible travel. This course is part of a series that prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-701) exam.

CompTIA Security+: Mitigation Techniques
As a security professional, it is always better to be proactive with mitigation rather than purely reactive. Begin this course by exploring segmentation and isolation, access control mechanisms, and configuration and patch management. Next, you will investigate the principles of least privilege and separation of duties and find out how encryption technologies can shield private information from unauthorized users. Then you will examine the monitoring and visibility of access controls and learn the best practices for decommissioning and offboarding. Finally, you will focus on hardening techniques, including endpoint detection and response (EDR), host intrusion detection system (HIDS)/host intrusion prevention system (HIPS), disabling ports/protocols, default password changes, and removal of unnecessary software. This course is part of a series that prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-701) exam.

CompTIA Security+: Architecture & Infrastructure Concepts
A physical structure that is built by engineers and architects needs solid design, construction, and ongoing maintenance. The same can be said for a networking and system environment. Begin this course by exploring fundamental security architectural considerations, including high availability, resilience, scalability, and responsiveness. Then, you will discover cloud computing, focusing on the cloud responsibility matrix, hybrid considerations, and third-party vendors. You will investigate Infrastructure as Code, compare serverless technologies, and learn about containers and microservices. Next, you will take a look at network infrastructure, centralized and decentralized design, and virtualization. Finally, you will examine industrial control systems (ICSs), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, and the Internet of Things. This course is part of a series that prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-701) exam.

CompTIA Security+: Enterprise Infrastructure Security Principles
This course is a critical component of modern technical controls and countermeasures, as many of the technologies covered represent the daily technical activities of security practitioners, operators, and administrators. Begin by discovering various infrastructure security considerations like device placement, security zones, and failure modes. Then, you will compare network appliances and explore port security and firewalls. Next, you will examine virtual private networks (VPNs) and IP security (IPSec). Finally, you will investigate transport layer security (TLS), software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs), and secure access service edge (SASE). This course is part of a series that prepares you for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-701) exam.

CompTIA Security+: Resilience & Recovery
Restoration and recovery is a vital part of a comprehensive backup plan. As a well-known axiom regarding backup strategy states, "a backup policy without tested restoration and recovery is no backup at all." In this course, we will examine restoration and recovery concepts, beginning with load balancing, clustering, and backup strategies. Next, we will explore continuity of operations, multicloud, and disaster recovery sites. We will then focus on capacity planning and testing techniques. Finally, we will look at power considerations.
