CompTIA Security+

Composed of nine segments, this series aims to discuss digital and physical security. By introducing an overarching discussion, course takers will be equipped with the knowledge needed for the SY0 -501 examination. 

Overview and Malware

This segment provides an introductory discussion about Security+, tapping the complex concepts of malware, ransomware, virus, and web-related infections. Divided into five parts, this lecture then provides theoretical and applied approaches to prevent these harmful web entities. As course takers go through this lesson, they will also be adept at other related concepts such as hacking, spamming, phishing, and delivery best practices.  

Mobile Devices and Hardening

This next section provides a holistic discussion about security setup. Involved here are the technicalities of firewalls, intrusion detection software, and pop-up blockers while emphasizing related components such as BIOS and storage devices. In addition to this, a tutorial is provided on how to secure mobile devices by integrating more robust encryption. It then tackles different security methods such as updating and patching while focusing on the importance of policies and patch management.               

Virtualization and Secure Development

Virtualization has long proven its significance, but its lasting relevance made malicious digital activities more rampant. This lecture then introduces course takers to virtual machine creation and the security measures associated with it. Next, it holds a separate discussion about security integration in different medium such as in applications and websites. Lastly, it transitions to security-related concepts of configuration, vulnerability patching, exploits, buffer overflows, SQL injection, and cross-site scripting.               

Network Design and Cloud

This four-part discussion presents design practices and principles that  make a network or a cloud system more functional and aesthetically appealing. It then covers pertinent concepts, including OSI model, switchers, routers, access, sub-setting, and telephony. Lastly, it covers some of the industry's best practices in handling threats, implementing perimeter security, and utilizing proxy servers.

Securing Networks

This course introduces the concepts of port and protocol, both of which are significant in harmful digital attack. Also covered are different types of cyber-related attacks, giving a comprehensive list of measures to negate transitive attacks, hijacking, spoofing, and DDOS. Other related subjects that are authoritatively presented are demonstrations of null sessions, wireless encryption, and ARP poisoning. 

Physical Security and Access Control

Apart from cyber-security, this module aims to discuss security in the physical context. The usage of surveillance, technical doors, biometrics, and other security-related instruments will be discussed authoritatively.  This also covers conceptual challenges that corporate, social, and medical facilities encounter. While doing so, it will then tackle pertinent processes, including authentication, access control, and best practices. The tutorial was summarized by discussing the concept of accounts and groups. 

Risk Assessment and monitoring

Involved in this lecture are risk evaluations observed in qualitative and quantitative approaches. This then covers various testing techniques, including penetration and vulnerability. Not only does it run network testing, it also provides holistic intervention, including scanning, monitoring, and logging. 

Cryptography and PKI

This four-part lecture comprehensively discusses the overarching concept of cryptography- its definition, technicality, implementation, and related concepts. Course takers will then understand several key points including the use and advantages of steganography and public key infrastructure. 

Social Engineering and Wrap up

Contingency has been the highlight of the last part, wherein disaster planning, recovery, and redundancy are discussed. It then introduces social engineering as a concept, complete with definition and advantages. Lastly, it holds multiple lectures about engineering policies, procedures, and relationships.
