Assess cyber readiness with advanced security controls and create a secure enterprise system


  • In-depth explanation of security architecture, security operations, security engineering and cryptography.
  • Boosts practical skills with the aid of troubleshooting tips and exam-specific notes.
  • Provides live use-cases to design, implement, and integrate security solutions across enterprise environments.


CompTIA CASP+ certification evaluates advanced technical security skills, such as security engineering and operations, enterprise-level risk assessments and IT governance, and the implementation of secure systems and network design and controls.

This CASP+ certification guide enables security professionals to become proficient and certified in creating highly resilient enterprise systems and networks that adhere to regulatory requirements. It contains real-world scenarios, practice tests, and numerous troubleshooting tips. Readers are instructed to create and construct security architectures for diverse business requirements. The book teaches how to create robust security methods for traditional, cloud, hybrid, and virtual environments. Readers learn how to set up application vulnerability controls, such as sandboxing, database security, and firmware security, and reduce their risks. Towards the end, readers can investigate various cryptography approaches such as hashing, code signing, SMIME, PKI, and DRM watermarking.

Every chapter of this CASP+ study guide is dedicated to helping the reader develop the practical, performance-based skills necessary to succeed in the exam.


  • Conduct risk analysis, establish risk metrics and compare security baselines
  • Learn different ways to secure host systems, devices, and storage controls
  • Learn about malware sandboxing, fingerprinting, reconnaissance, and memory debugging
  • Several vulnerability assessment tools include port scanners, protocol analyzers, and application interceptors
  • Exposure to code signing, DRM watermarking, hashing, and PKI
  • Expert advice on integrating hosts, networks, storage, and applications


This book is for security architects, senior security engineers, security lead, and most security practitioners who want to get certified in designing an enterprise security landscape that works best for the business environment. The book expects professional knowledge on security before reading this book.
