Mark Ciampa addresses real-world business challenges and hands-on exercises to ease students into CompTIA's Security+ latest exam objectives. Designed for an introductory network security course, this text has been completely rewritten to include new topics and additional end-of-chapter material. The accompanying lab manual will provide extensive practice for working with cryptography, common attackers, and business communications in a real-world situation. Free CoursePrep and CertBlaster Security+ exam preparation software will aid in your students' success in and out of the classroom. This edition now includes "On the Job" features to open each chapter and focus on real-world business challenges. Icons are inserted within the running text to highlight topics later applied in the hands-on projects.
"End of chapter hands-on projects are terrific. Not only do these activities have students physically making changes to machines, but it forces them to pay attention to choices that they and the users that they will support have to make." - Barbara Belon, Norwalk Community College
"The strengths of Chapter 1 are ease of reading and straightforward approach. The terms are well-defined, and the examples are great." - Keith Morneau, Capella University
