Firebrand Training CompTIA CASP+

On this accelerated 3-day Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) course, you’ll get the advanced skills you need to design and create secure solutions across complex business environments - 40% faster than traditional training.

Your expert instructor will provide you with technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualise, engineer, integrate and implement secure solutions across complex environments to support a resilient enterprise.

On your accelerated CASP+ Course you'll also learn:

  • Architect, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments to support a resilient enterprise
  • Use monitoring, detection, incident response, and automation to proactively support ongoing security operations in an enterprise environment
  • Apply security practices to cloud, on-premises, endpoint, and mobile infrastructure, while considering cryptographic technologies and techniques
  • Consider the impact of governance, risk, and compliance requirements throughout the enterprise

You'll be immersed in the curriculum with our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique - helping you develop and retain knowledge faster and develop skills for the real world with hands-on, practical labs.

Firebrand Training is an Authorised Partner of CompTIA. This means that you are guaranteed the highest level of instructor and course material, all of which is officially approved by CompTIA.

CASP+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
