CompTIA Security+ certification designates knowledgeable professionals in the field of security. It is one of the baseline IT security certifications for DoD 8570, as required for employment in a federal government or contractor role. Security+ is also one of the top tech certifications requested in Arizona IT job postings.

Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Security+ candidates have at least two years of technical networking experience. Cisco or CompTIA Network+ training and certification are also recommended.
