Who should complete this credential?
This credential is designed for the IT security expert who wishes to advance his career in a hands-on, practitioner role - not as a manager. 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.
This credential requires extensive experience in IT network and security roles, and it is recommended for individuals with 5-10 years of experience in IT security who wish to validate their skills and understanding of cybersecurity and security architecture.
This credential is best suited for working professionals in roles like security architects, SOC managers, senior security engineers, and security analysts.
