The security of computer systems, mobile devices, and other technologies is an ever-growing concern throughout the world. Modern society depends on computer systems and networks to run everything from vital resources to simple communication.

The interconnectedness of systems and reliance on technology results in a demand for greater security measures to protect people’s personally identifiable information (PII) and keep everyday life at a functional state. These reasons led to the creation of the CompTIA Security+ certification and it’s acceptance across government and private industry as a standard for entry level security knowledge.
