What is CompTIA Certification?

CompTIA (Computing Technology Industry Association) offers many CompTIA courses. It provides accreditation to the training providers. The accredited training providers provide the CompTIA courses to candidates after completing training and passing exams. CompTIA was established in 1982. About 2.2 million people got certification every year. When CompTIA was founded, it was named as ABCD (Association of Better Computer Dealers).

In 2014, CompTIA launched Dream IT program for girls and women. In June 2015, it also launched online resources for schools. This organisation includes resources for teachers and students to get competence of computer skills.

Steps for achieving CompTIA certification:

  • The delegates have to choose one of the certification:
    • A plus Certification: The candidates who want to get competence of IT infrastructure should attend this course.
    • Security plus Certification: This certification provides risk resolution skills.
    • Network plus Certification: This certification provides competence of networking skills.
  • The delegates can enrol through classroom, online and offline delivery methods.
  • The delegates can book the course

What is IT Security?

Security is essential for digital information and IT resources. The attacker can attack internally, externally or maliciously. The protection mechanism includes detection and prevention of threats. It also includes security policies, It services and software tools. The two types of security are provided to systems. One is information security and other is computer security.

The need of Security:

  • The security is required to protect the systems.
  • The information should be protected.
  • The confidential information should not be retrieved by the unofficial persons.

Various kinds of attacks:

The systems may be targeted by attackers. Two type of attacks can occur:

  • Passive attacks: The attacks are done to monitor the system.
  • Active attacks: These attacks are done to harm data of the system.

The following types of attacks can happen:

  • Denial-of-Service attack: It affects the system performance by not allowing employees to use the resources.
  • Sniffer attack: Using the sniffer software, the attackers can outbreak the system which enables them to read information and analyse
  • Brute-Force attack: The attackers try to crack the passwords using keys generated by original passwords.

How to Detect and defend the attacks?

This can be done as following:

  1. Recognize the cyphers of a DDoS attack.
  2. Incident response preparation
  3. Contacting ISP provider
