What are the benefits of taking a IT-Security Foundation exam?
An S-ITSF certificate demonstrates that you have an overall understanding of IT security challenges and best-practice remedies. If you are considering a career in IT security, S-ITSF provides you with an excellent opportunity to enter the security industry and advance your skills with higher-level security trainings.
The certificate is particularly suitable for network and system administrators seeking career advancement. If you work in a similar role, S-ITSF may be your opportunity to take your first step towards becoming a security administrator, security auditor, security engineer, security analyst or penetration tester.
S-ITSF also has benefits for managers whose work involves regular communication with IT (security) specialists. If you work with security professionals, or if your business decisions affect the IT domain, the ability to perceive IT security risks and liaise with security professionals can considerably improve your efficacy as a manager. Depending on your interests and background, S-ITSF may even open you to new career opportunities – for example, a project or change management position in an IT or information security-related environment.
