CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner Certification

CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification designates IT professionals with advanced-level security skills and knowledge.
The CASP exam is available at U.S. and Canadian Pearson VUE centers.   

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification is an international, vendor-neutral exam that proves competency in enterprise security; risk management; research and analysis; and integration of computing, communications, and business disciplines.
The exam covers the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, design, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. It involves applying critical thinking and judgment across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to propose and implement solutions that map to enterprise drivers.

While there is no required prerequisite, the CASP certification is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus at the enterprise level.

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification is accredited by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification may be kept current through the CompTIA Continuing Education program.
