Cryptography has been used for thousands of years to secure messages and hide information from those who would seek to steal it. In this course, you'll learn about cryptographic concepts and techniques along with examining the security implications associated with enterprise storage. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CAS-002) certification exam.

Target Audience
Security candidates looking to certify their technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments
