CompTia Training

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) examination is an intermediate-level credential for cybersecurity professionals. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization
  • Configure and use threat detection tools
  • Secure and protect applications and systems within an organization

The behavioral analytics skills covered by the CompTIA CySA+ certification identify and combat malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in better threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization’s interior network.

As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, an analytics-based approach has become extremely important. CySA+ applies behavioral analytics to the IT security market to improve the overall state of security.

CySA+ also bridges the professional level CompTIA Security+ and the mastery level CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner CASP certification.

Prerequisites

Network+, Security+ or equivalent knowledge. Minimum of 3-4 years of hands-on information security or related experience. While there is no required prerequisite, CySA+ is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus.

  • Earn continuing education units (CEUs) by participating in qualified activities, such as publishing an article or white paper, obtaining another industry certification, or attending a relevant conference or event.
