Domain 1: General Security Concepts

The first domain of the CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 certification focuses on key security concepts and practices. This domain is divided into four chapters, each providing an understanding of different aspects of cybersecurity.

You’ll get an overview of the various types of security controls, such as preventative, deterrent, detective, correcting, compensating, and directive, and the different levels at which security is considered, including technical, managerial, operational, and physical. You’ll also learn about fundamental security concepts, such as the CIA Triad, AAA, Zero Trust, physical security, and different deception technologies.

This section will further discuss the change management process, covering the decision-making processes between stakeholders regarding security concerns that impact business operations and the technical implications of change, documentation, and version control.

Finally, Domain 1 emphasizes the use of cryptographic solutions, such as public keys and encryption and their relevant tools, as well as concepts such as salting, digital signatures, key stretching, blockchains, and certificates.

This section comprises the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1, Compare and contrast various types of security controls
  • Chapter 2, Summarize fundamental security concepts
  • Chapter 3, Explain the importance of change management processes and the impact on security
  • Chapter 4, Explain the importance of using appropriate cryptographic solutions
