The CASP 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 managing risk.
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.
CompTIA is ANSI accredited Certifier - 0731. The CASP program is included in the scope of this accreditation. The CASP certification may be kept current through the CompTIA Continuing Education program.
