"Where Qualified Cyber Education Happens"

How to plan for network security that matches your technology infrastructure from top to bottom.

CASP is CompTIA's first mastery-level certification for enterprise technical security leads. CASP certification is an international, vendor-neutral certification that designates IT professionals with advanced-level security skills and knowledge. Achieving CASP certification proves your competency in enterprise security, risk management, research and analysis, and integrating computing, communications, and business disciplines. Becoming CASP certified confirms that you have the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, design, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. CASP certifies that you can apply critical thinking and judgment across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to propose and implement solutions that map to enterprise drivers.

CASP is designed for seasoned security specialists whose work deals with the day-to-day operations of an IT environment's security aspects. It takes what you learn in a CompTIA Security+ course and strengthen while reinforcing your expertise in this widely accepted standard for network security professionals. Besides enterprise level security, you will also further develop skills in areas such as research, analysis, and the integration of computing and communications in a business environment. This course is the perfect opportunity for seasoned IT security professionals to hone existing skills and build new ones in a wide range of security-related disciplines that will allow companies to carry on operations in safe and secure environments. As businesses throughout the area and across the world become more connected and more reliant on IT, the need for experts to act as administrators is only going to rise with time.

8570.1 Approved CASP certification is included in the approved list of certifications that meet the DoD Directive 8570.1 requirements. It is approved as a baseline certification for the IAT Level III, IAM Level II, and IASAE Level I and II.

KU Outcomes



Grades - All students must ordinarily take all quizzes, labs, final exam and submit the class practical in order to be eligible for a Q/ISP, Q/IAP, Q/SSE, or Q/WP credential unless granted an exception in writing by the President. Know that Q/ISP classes draws quite the spectrum of students, including "those less comfortable," "those more comfortable," and those somewhere in between. However, what ultimately matters in this course is not so much where you end up relative to your classmates but where you end up relative to yourself in on Friday of class. The course is graded as a pass or fail solely on your attendance and participation.
