In the current economy, many people are looking for career paths that will give them job security. Most times these individuals look to computer security certification training. One of the foundation certifications that anyone entering in to this field needs is the Security+ certification. IT Security employees are always needed and although many of these companies simply hire individuals without any experience, they are now realizing that it is better to hire employees that have received a Security+ certification. The video explains how this certification allows a professional to earn more money and gives the necessary experience to help set one’ self apart from competition. Security+ certification demonstrates a skill set and adds another check mark to potential employers on their proposal writing strength.
The video explains how it is important to keep the certification current, as this helps to ensure one is making the average salary for a Security+ certified employee. The starting salary is roughly $55,000, although this is going to vary, depending on the wants and needs of a particular company. After five years, the average salary jumps up to slightly over $75,000 a year. Information Assurance training can continue after the Security+. Most people think of the CISSP certification, which is shown to yield an average salary of roughly $100,000 a year. With further experience, this number moves upwards of $152,000 a year, depending on several different aspects, including the company and the city location.
When looking to IT Security / Information Assurance as a new career, the Security+ certification helps people create a lucrative career path. TrainACE’s Security+ program is a certification course that provides attendees with the knowledge and experience needed to excel in the IT security world. Knowing how to perform a task and actually having experience performing these tasks are completely different and training with TrainACE helps to bridge that gap.
