CompTIA’s training for an Executive Certificate in IT Security Foundations is designed to aid a solution provider in its transformation into a trusted IT security advisor. All too often IT security is viewed as a necessary evil, if not as an outright barrier to doing business. Changing that perception requires you to exhibit a certain finesse in designing and implementing solutions. It means applying granular, rather than crude, security controls, to be more effective and comprehensive in a changing IT environment.

With this certification training, you’ll gauge the impact of emerging trends on your customers’ businesses, explore ways to facilitate meaningful conversations around security, and leverage those conversations in the design and implementation of appropriate IT solutions. This training is a three-course set:

  • Transforming Your Business Through IT Security shows you what comprehensive IT protection looks like, so you may scrutinize the investments required to become successful.
  • Assessing and Managing Risk explores the process for completing a risk analysis, and provides you with a tool for assessing customers’ risk evaluation needs.
  • Solution Selling Strategies is designed to help solution providers with a solid IT security business to build on that foundation, with special focus on unified threat management, cloud security, and the challenges brought on by a more mobile workforce.

Start your journey toward IT security certification now, and then keep improving with continued training and insight from the IT channel professionals at CompTIA.
