CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner, CASP


The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) certification designates IT professionals with advanced-level security skills and knowledge. This certification establishes knowledgeable professionals in the field of advanced security practices. Students will first learn about enterprise security architecture, security technology, and resource technology. They will then learn about security design and solutions, application security design, managing risk, security policies, security procedures, and enterprise security integration. Finally, they will learn about security research and analysis, disaster recovery and business continuity, managing risk in projects, legal issues, and judgment and decision-making.

The course covers the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, design, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. It involves applying critical thinking and judgment across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to propose and implement solutions that map to enterprise drivers while managing risk.

While there is no required prerequisite, the CASP certification is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus at the enterprise level.
