The MDTS Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) Certification is a vendor-neutral credential. The CASP exam is an internationally targeted validation of advanced-level security skills and knowledge. While there is no required prerequisite, the CASP certification is intended to follow the MDTS Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, "hands-on" focus at the enterprise level. The CASP Course will certify that the candidate has the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, engineer, integrate and implement secure solutions across complex environments. The candidate will apply critical thinking and judgment across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to propose and implement sustainable security solutions that map to organizational strategies, translate business needs into security requirements, analyzes risk impact and respond to security incidents.
