Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
CompTIA's Security+ certification is now recommended or required by IT organizations ranging from IBM/Tivoli to Symantec and Verisign. This package contains everything you need to prepare: expert review from two top IT security experts, "virtual classroom" DVD instruction, and Web-based exams that target your knowledge gaps -- so you can fill them, fast.

A word about the authors' credentials. Ido Dubrawsky is chief security advisor for Microsoft's Communication Sector North America. Jeremy Faircloth's a working IT manager who's written on topics ranging from Cisco security to spyware. They know what you're up against, and it shows.

Dubrawsky and Faircloth explain everything from access control to brute-force attacks, and offer CompTIA-compatible best practices for everything from physical security to policy creation. Of course, everything's updated for the newest exam. If you have the requisite experience and commitment, this package should get you "over the hump" on your first try.
