CompTIA Certifications Approved for Directive 8570.1

  1. 1. CompTIA Certifications Approved for Directive 8570.1 CompTIA’s vendor-neutral certifications ensure your employees have foundation-level knowledge and skills to perform in IT job roles. CompTIA certifications are developed with the support of IT industry-leading companies and organizations and validated by field experts around the world. Three CompTIA certifications fulfill the U.S. Department of Defense’s Directive 8570.1: CompTIA A+®, Network+® and Security+™. CompTIA is currently completing ISO/IEC Standard 17024 accreditation for these certifications. In recent CompTIA research*, four out of five organizations indicated that training has improved IT security, by increasing awareness, boosting abilities at identifying potential risks, improving security measures and increasing staff response time. Security content was recently expanded in CompTIA A+ and added to CompTIA Network+ to prepare workers with the knowledge and skills to keep your networks safe from security threats. CompTIA Security+, while remaining a foundation-level certification, covers security knowledge at a level appropriate for a network or security administrator. These certifications are the IT industry standard for measuring competencies and ensuring the workforce has the skills to perform with efficiency.

  2. 2. CompTIA Certifications Approved for Directive 8570.1 CompTIA A+ certification is an international industry credential that validates the foundational knowledge of IT technicians. Many businesses and government and academic institutions recognize CompTIA A+ as the standard for foundation-level IT knowledge and skills. More than 600,000 individuals in more than 190 countries have achieved CompTIA A+ certification. CompTIA A+ covers topics such as installing, configuring, diagnosing and preventive maintenance of hardware and software components, as well as networks and soft skills. With the assistance of the DoD and leading industry organizations, security coverage has also been expanded. For more information, please visit http://certification.comptia.org/a+. CompTIA Network+ certification is an international industry credential that validates the knowledge of networking professionals with at least nine months of experience in network support or administration or adequate academic training. The exam tests technical ability in the areas of media and topologies, protocols and standards, network implementation and network support. Top technology companies including Microsoft, Novell and Hewlett-Packard recognize CompTIA Network+ as part of their certification tracks. Many other corporations recommend or require CompTIA Network+ certification for their IT employees. CompTIA Network+ is the standard for networking competency. For more information, visit http://certification.comptia.org/network+. CompTIA Security+ validates mastery of security knowledge of an individual with two years on-the-job networking experience, with emphasis on security. The exam covers industry-wide topics, including communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, access control, authentication, external attack, and operational and organization security. The objectives of CompTIA Security+ were derived through input from industry, government and academia, a job task analysis, a survey of more than 1,100 subject matter experts and a beta exam with responses from subject matter experts around the world. The industry and governments around the world must have a well-trained workforce to combat hackers, attacks and security threats. CompTIA Security+ is the standard validation for that workforce. Companies such as Sun, McAfee, IBM/Tivoli Software Group, Symantec, Motorola and Olympus Security Group know the value of a CompTIA Security+ certification and recommend or require it of their IT employees.
