Level 1 | Cybersecurity Foundation
The CompTIA Security+ Course is a great fit if you have some IT and computer background and are looking to start a career in cybersecurity. If you already have experience in cybersecurity, the Security+ certification is an excellent way to validate your experience and fill in knowledge gaps.
Level 2 | Offensive Track
The CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) Course is an extremely fast-paced course that gives you an excellent overview of hacking and penetration testing. The course includes a 180 day subscription to an online hacking environment, so you can practice your hacking skills. This course is for anyone looking to become a penetration tester or looking to improve cyber defense skills.
Level 2 | Defensive Track
The CHFI (Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator) Course is a fast-paced course that covers the fundamentals of digital forensics. The techniques used and evidence left by attackers are analyzed in this course. The course also emphasizes crime scene investigation. The course includes a 180 day subscription to an online lab environment, where you can practice with many forensics tools and techniques. This course is great for anyone looking to understand how to investigate digital crime.
Level 3 | Technical Track
The CASP (CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner) Course is considered an advanced course. Foundational topics covered in Security+ are expanded upon. In Security+ the expectation was for you to know the material at the knowledge level. For CASP, the expectation is you should know the material at the comprehension and application level. The course is excellent for cybersecurity professionals with several years of experience. CompTIA recommends this certification for IT professionals with at least 5 years of experience.
Level 3 | Management Track
The CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) Course is a fast-paced course that covers a lot of topics at a medium to high-level, ranging from sprinkler systems to asymmetric encryption. The CISSP is almost a required certification now for anyone involved with a senior cybersecurity technical or managerial role. Because it is so broad, we consider it a non-technical certification. It is a knowledge-based certification, not application-based. To become a CISSP you will need to pass the certification exam and apply for the certification. Your application must demonstrate you have a least five years of cumulative, paid, full-time work experience in two or more of the eight domains covered in the course. This course is excellent for anyone wanting to take their career to the next level or open career doors.
Level 4 | C-level Track
The CCISO (Certified Chief Information Security Officer) Course is aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOs need and the technical knowledge that many aspiring CISOs have. This can be a crucial gap as a practitioner endeavors to move from mid-management to upper, executive management roles. Much of this is traditionally learned as on-the-job training, but the CCISO Training Program can be the key to a successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management.
