CompTIA CySA+ Cybersecurity Analyst CS0-002

$99.00

CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certification that applies behavioral analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect, and combat cybersecurity threats through continuous security monitoring.

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 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.

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification verifies that successful candidates have the knowledge and skills required to leverage intelligence and threat detection techniques, analyze and interpret data, identify and address vulnerabilities, suggest preventative measures, and effectively respond to and recover from incidents.

The course is intended for Security analysts at a Tier II level, Intermediate/mid-career cybersecurity specialists, Students holding a DoD IAT Level II or CSSP position, Network+ or Security+ certification holders wanting to take that next step, and anyone else wanting to expand their skillset and knowledge.

You will learn the following, to leverage intelligence, and threat detection techniques, to analyze and interpret data, to identify and address vulnerabilities, to suggest preventative measures, and to effectively respond to and recover from incidents.

CompTIA CySA+ meets the ISO 17024 standard and is approved by the 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). Regulators and governments rely on ANSI accreditation because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.

This course reviews topics for the CS0-002 version of the CySA+ exam, which became the only version available as of October 22, 2020. It does not currently have a retirement date, but an exam version is typically active for three years.
