CompTIA IT Security Toolkit

Cybersecurity is a coordinated system — not a state of being, not an attitude, not a feeling. At its heart are people, not machines. Too often, people are ascribed to be the cause of security failures rather than the source of its successes. With CompTIA’s IT Security Toolkit, you’ll be given the tools and policies you need to empower the people in your organization to assemble an effective and resilient system of cybersecurity.

With these key components in place, you and your cybersecurity team can draw the right conclusions, make the right choices, and execute the best plans. You can become the source of wisdom and the center of resilience for your organization. Download this IT Security Toolkit now and discover where your journey toward effective cybersecurity begins, and where it will lead.

CompTIA Research and Market Intelligence provides timely, relevant data and insights aimed at informing and driving the IT industry. CompTIA has a library of over 100 research reports, whitepapers, videos and webinars, with new material produced each month. Using rigorous research techniques, CompTIA collects data from tens of thousands of end users and IT companies on a wide range of issues covering tech trends, channel dynamics and the IT workforce.

Being aware of trends and new technologies is a great way to stay on top of things. No one is expecting you to read research briefs every day, but when a strategic decision has to be made about what should be next for your firm, or if you do have to recover from an event and you’re looking for ways to improve, CompTIA Research should be on your list of information to review.

Here are some recent studies in the realm of cybersecurity. But the latest are always found here.

Research is available through many other outlets beyond CompTIA. But as a Premier Member, there is no better place to get your hands on this information at no additional cost to you.


From a practical standpoint, IT security comes down to some basic things. You may not be able to prevent everything coming your way, but by implementing the suggestions found in this toolkit, you can have a puncher’s chance.
