Earning a CASP+ (CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner) certification is the proof your advanced-level competency in risk management; enterprise security operations and architecture; integration of enterprise security; and research and collaboration. The successful candidates of this exam gain skills in:

- Examining risk through interpreting trend data and anticipating cyber defense.

While cybersecurity managers identify what cybersecurity policies and frameworks could be implemented, CASP+ certified professionals figure out how to implement solutions within those policies and frameworks.
Before you go for CompTIA CASP+ certification, CompTIA recommends that you have a minimum of ten years of experience in IT administration, including at least five years of hands-on technical security experience.
