CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) Certification Training Course
CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) engineers are trained to apply behavioral analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect and combat cybersecurity threats through continuous security monitoring. This course prepares you for the new CySA+ (CS0-003) exam.
As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, such as firewalls and anti-virus software, an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry is increasingly important for organizations. CompTIA CySA+ applies behavioral analytics to networks to improve the overall state of security through identifying and combating malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in an enhanced threat visibility across a broad attack surface. It will validate an IT professional’s ability to proactively defend and continuously improve the security of an organization.
CySA+ will verify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to:
- Leverage intelligence and threat detection techniques
- Analyze and interpret data
- Identify and address vulnerabilities
- Suggest preventative measures
- Effectively respond to and recover from incidents
Key Areas of Focus for the CySA+ Exam:
- Security analytics
- Intrusion detection
- Incident response
- Security assessment
- Security infrastructure
- Security program management
- Security operations
Benefits of Earning the CySA+ Certification:
- Validate your cybersecurity skills and knowledge: The CySA+ certification is recognized by employers worldwide and is a valuable credential for cybersecurity professionals seeking to advance their careers.
- Enhance your earning potential: Certified cybersecurity professionals earn a higher average salary than their non-certified counterparts.
- Gain a competitive edge: The CySA+ certification can help you stand out from the competition and increase your job prospects.
- Stay up-to-date on the latest cybersecurity threats and trends: The CySA+ exam is regularly updated to reflect the latest cybersecurity threats and trends, ensuring that certified professionals have the knowledge and skills to protect their organizations from evolving cyber threats.
This course is taught by a cybersecurity expert. You are taught via a mix of theory lessons, follow-along labs and then practice exams.
The CompTIA CySA+ features Performance Based Questions (PBQs) which test your practical skills. For this reason it's vital that you don't just learn theory if you want to be successful in the exam.
CompTIA CySA+ meets the ISO 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements. It is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). Over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.
CySA+ Exam Pass
Colin used this video training course and lab coaching to pass his CySA+ exam.
The exam is perfect for aspiring security managers, network support engineers, penetration testers, or cyber ops professionals. You can progress onto the CASP+ after you have a few years of experience under your belt. Cybersecurity knowledge is a must-have for network security engineers, programmers, and cloud engineers. It's also tested in CompTIA, Cisco, and Microsoft exams.
Areas tested in the exam and covered in your course include security operations, vulnerability management, incident response and troubleshooting. These are the bread-and-butter tasks you will be using on a daily basis supporting Linux devices. If you wish, you can progress to take more advanced certifications in both Linux and Security.
