Course Overview

CompTIA is a not-for-profit trade association with the purpose of advancing the interests of IT professionals and IT channel organizations, and its industry-leading IT certifications are an important part of that mission. CompTIA CyberSecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification is an intermediate-level certification designed to demonstrate the knowledge and competencies of a security analyst or specialist with four years' experience in the field.

This course covers the duties of cybersecurity analysts who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. The course introduces tools and tactics to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization's security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. The course will also prepare you for the CompTIA CySA+ (Exam CS0-002) certification examination.
