CompTIA CASP+ Certification Exam Training - Frequently Asked Questions

The CompTIA CASP+ exam is designed for advanced-level IT professionals interested in building a career in cybersecurity. The CASP+ exam validates your skills in advanced risk management and enterprise security operations and architecture.

If you’ve already successfully passed the CompTIA Security+ exam and have a minimum of 5 years of hands-on industry experience in an IT administration role with a concentration in security, you’re ready to start preparing for your CASP+ certification exam.

The CompTIA CASP+ exam covers a high-level range of topics that help demonstrate competency in IT fundamentals including:

  • Enterprise security domain expanded to include operations and architecture concepts, techniques and requirements
  • Analyzing risk through interpreting trend data and anticipating cyberdefense needs to meet business goals
  • Expanding security control topics to include mobile and small-form factor devices, as well as software vulnerability
  • Broader coverage of integrating cloud and virtualization technologies into a secure enterprise architecture
  • Inclusion of implementing cryptographic techniques, such as blockchain, cryptocurrency and mobile device encryption

Before taking the CompTIA CASP+ certification exam, you should feel confident in demonstrating your knowledge across these 5 core areas:

  • Risk Management

    Analyze security risks and frameworks that come along with specific industry threats and organizational requirements and execute risk mitigation strategies.

  • Enterprise Security Architecture

    Integrate network and security components and implement security controls for host, mobile and small form factor devices..

  • Enterprise Security Operations

    Implement incident response and recovery procedures and conduct security assessments using appropriate tools.

  • Technical Integration of Enterprise Security

    Integrate hosts, storage, networks and applications into a secure enterprise architecture using on-premise, cloud, and virtualization technologies.

  • Research, Development & Collaboration

    Apply research methods to determine industry trends and their impact to the enterprise.

Individuals with an up-to-date CASP+ certification on their resume are in high demand. The technical skills validated through the CompTIA CASP+ certification exam will help prepare you for advanced-level IT career opportunities such as:

  • Cybersecurity Specialist
  • Information Security Architect
  • Senior Network Administrator

If you’re looking to launch or advance your career in cybersecurity, CASP+ is one of the most in-demand certifications for mid to advanced-level cybersecurity jobs. We recommend you successfully pass the CompTIA Security+ exam before attempting more advanced certifications, such as CASP+ or CISSP.

CompTIA CASP+ certification is approved by the US Department of Defense to meet requirements for employment positions listed under the 8140/8570 directive. If you have no prior work experience, or prior industry certifications, you will want to start building your IT, networking, and basic security fundamentals with the CompTIA Security+ exam.
