English [Auto] Hello and welcome to the either this or different security spatiality really of course I am. And I will instruct that throughout the course now and that is we will have a high level or view on what this security specialty certification exam is all about. What are the prerequisites and how we can go about preparing for this certification exam. No enemies had launched the full fledged version of the security specialty day after to. And so initially the U.S. had launched the fourth day exam. They somehow canceled it. They launched the certification with the second b day exam and only have the second b day exam was completed then the full flight certification was launched. And in terms of exam domains and even the questions that you might be asked it is very similar to the second with the exam which either US had launched. Now in terms of syllabus this exam is divided into five domains. The domain one is incidentally Swan's domain two is logging and monitoring domain. Three is infrastructure security domain for this identity and access management domain fi is de depredation. Now all these five domains the infrastructure security subsidy has to be the largest one domain for identity and access management subs that used to be one of the crucial domains. Now I have seen a lot of candidates not being able to pass the certification primarily because of lack of understanding about the identity and access management. And this is the reason why we have given a lot of emphasis in this specific domain. We're also given a good amount of emphasis on each in every domain and all we do is that we have for this certification we do of course we proved to be extremely important for you do the exam. Now in terms of scoring systems and prerequisites the either this or certified security specialties or pass or fail exam now scores are measured against a maximum of thousand months with the passing of 750 so it can be considered as their total of 75 percent as the mandate for passing now becomes a prerequisite and recommended knowledge. Either it has removed the prerequisite of having the A.W. solutions architect succeed or glück practitioner. Or are mandatory so that prerequisite is now removed so you can directly go ahead and sit for the exam. Now either this is the command that the candidate should have to use of hands on experience with individual. Now do remember that either the security specialty is not an easy exam it is a very challenging exam. So you need to understand the basic or you need to have a base a solid foundation a body in the U.S.. So what I recommend to this second point is either by me that a candidate who is sitting for the exam they should have the either this associates or defecation or they should have knowledge which is similar to the either solutions architect associated to vacation. So let's do a let's look into the official certification page. So this is the official database page. And if you go down they have the recommended knowledge and they recommend a minimum of five years of I.T. security experience. This is I would say a beneficial but not mandatory for this exam I have seen a lot of candidates who have quite good knowledge and they have the certification but they do not really have five years of experience. Now one important part here is the exam for you. So again this is going to be my choice. My plan said the length is going to be 170 minutes as mentioned. And will have a total of 65 questions and the registration fee are very similar to the professional certification. It's 300 USD now on the right hand side. You can download the exam guide the exam guide look something similar to what we have here. Now if you'll see it this exam can dudes are to be of five domains. You have them in my two three four and five. And if you look into the percentage of examination the minimum is great person and so each and every domain is extremely important and you cannot skip any one of these and I'm sure that if you go to that we do of course that we have to hold all the vitamins you'll be pretty well prepared for this certification exam. So that's about it. About the overview of the certification. I hope this or review has been useful for you if you have any doubts.
