Security+ and SSCP
This edition is focused on security topics for people studying for the Security+ and SSCP exams. It also includes an offer for free review copies of my newly released SSCP Systems Security Certified Practitioner All-in-One Exam Guide book. (Sorry though, it’s too late to get one of the five free SSCP review books offered in the newsletter. Maybe next months newsletter will have another freebie available you can get for yourself.)
This edition also includes a few links to some interesting articles on the Internet such as the Top 5 Information Security Certifications written by Ed Tittle. Another article lists Security+ as the most common security certification.
If you’d like to see anything in the next edition, feel free to enter a comment on this page or send me a message from here.
I also talked a little about Twitter. In case you don’t know it, I tweet daily Security+ tips and you can view them here. Here are a few recent tweets related to fault tolerance on the SY0-301 exam:
- Failover clusters provide high availability for servers. They can remove a server as a single point of failure.
- RAID-1 uses two disks as a mirror. RAID-5 uses three or more disks using striping with parity.
- RAID subsystems, such as RAID-1 and RAID-5, provide increased availability for systems.
- Elements such as RAID, failover clustering, UPS, and generators remove many single points of failure.
- A single point of failure is any component whose failure results in the failure of an entire system.
Best of luck in your studies,
