EXAM CODES CAS-002 OR CAS-003
CASP is the only hands-on, performance-based certification for practitioners - not managers - at the advanced skill level of cybersecurity. While cybersecurity managers help identify what cybersecurity policies and frameworks could be implemented, CASP-certified professionals figure out how to implement solutions within those policies and frameworks.
The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification validates advanced-level competency in risk management; enterprise security operations and architecture; research and collaboration; and integration of enterprise security.
Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to:
CASP is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
The new CompTIA CASP CAS-003 exam is available as of April 2, 2018. More information on both versions of the exam is available in the Exam Details below.
