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 organisations. CompTIA CySA+ applies behavioural 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 organisation.
The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst, or CySA+, is a CompTIA certification focusing on the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat-detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpreting the results with the end goal of securing an organisation’s applications and systems. This certification will display an understanding of security best practices and protocols beyond that which is provided by the Security+ and will prove a level of expertise beyond that of basic security practices that are followed when using a computer. This allows any employee to prove a better understanding of enterprise security practices, and the necessary tools needed to protect a company network.
Who should Attend?
The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) is designed for IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts, or threat intelligence analysts. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organisation with the end goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organisation.
The CompTIA CSA+ exam (Exam CS0-001) is an internationally targeted validation of intermediate-level security skills and knowledge. The course has a technical, “hands-on” focus on IT security analytics.
After you complete this course you will be able to:
- Leverage intelligence and threat detection techniques
- Analyse and interpret data
- Identify and address vulnerabilities
- Suggest preventative measures
- Effectively respond to and recover from incidents
To ensure your success in this course, the CompTIA CySA+ certification expects three to four years of experience in a related field as well as a Security+ or equivalent knowledge. In this regard, the CompTIA CySA+ lies between the security+ as well as the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exams and is an excellent go-between to tackle before completing CASP, but when the Security+ isn’t enough.
