DPR-702 - Computer Security/Security +

This class meets concurrently with the credit course INT-1620. It is designed to give the student a foundation of understanding of various computer security concepts, functions and applications. The class maps to the CompTIA Security+ exam, although taking the test requires a separate fee and arrangements with the coordinator. Topics: general security, communication security, infrastructure security, basics of cryptography, and operations/organizational security. Upon completion of the class students should be prepared to take the CompTIA vendor neutral Security+ exam. Successful completion of this exam is generally globally recognized as equivalent to an entry-level security specialist position. Prerequisites: intermediate computer/pc skills with experience in the DOS, Windows, Unix and Linux operating systems and familiarity with the A+ operating systems technologies and GUI and Command Language Interface commands.
