The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst, or CSA+, 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 organization’s applications and systems. The CSA+ is a vendor neutral certification that expects three to four years of experience in a related field as well as a Security+ or equivalent knowledge. In this regard, the CSA+ lies between the security+ as well as the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exams and is an excellent go between to tackle before diving into the CASP, but when the Security+ isn’t enough. With the ongoing requirement for government agencies to receive certifications, the CSA+ was developed with a focus on meeting government requirements to certify IT workers or contractors. 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. The modules of this course align with the official objects of the certification and will expand past the scope of the certification to provide real life examples as well as lead ins to direct further study. This will give students more to work off of than simple definition based review and allow for easier understanding of the material for the certification as well as a basic understanding for real life application.

ITU’s courses include:

 

Expert Instructor-Led Training

ITU uses only the industry’s finest instructors in the IT industry. They have a minimum of 15 years real-world experience and are subject matter experts in their fields. Unlike a live class, you can fast-forward, repeat or rewind all your lectures. This creates a personal learning experience and gives you all the benefit of hands-on training with the flexibility of doing it around your schedule 24/7.

 

Visual Demonstrations & Multimedia Presentations

Our courseware includes instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations that allow students to develop their skills based on real world scenarios explained by the instructor. ITU always focuses on real world scenarios and skill-set development.

 

Quizzes & Exam Simulators

ITU’s custom practice exams prepare you for your exams differently and more effectively than the traditional exam preps on the market. You will have practice quizzes after each module to ensure you are confident on the topic you have completed before proceeding.

This will allow you to gauge your effectiveness before moving to the next module in your course. ITU Courses also include practice exams designed to replicate and mirror the environment in the testing center. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared before taking your certification exam.

 

Social Learning & Networking

ITU has designed a world class Learning Management System (LMS) This system allows you to interact and collaborate with other students and ITU employees, form study groups, engage in discussions in our NOW@ Forums, rate and “like” different courses and stay up to date with all the latest industry knowledge through our forums, student contributions and announcement features. This LMS is unmatched in the industry and makes learning fun and enjoyable.

 

Flash Cards & Educational Games

ITU knows that education is not a one size fits all approach. Students learn in different ways through different tools. That is why we provide Flash Cards and Education Games throughout our courses. This will allow you to train in ways that keep you engaged and focused. Each course will have dozens of Flash Cards so you can sharpen your skill-sets throughout your training as well as educational games designed to make sure your retention level of the materials is extremely high.

 

Navigation & Controls

ITU’s self-paced training programs are designed in a modular fashion to allow you the flexibility to work with expert level instruction anytime 24/7. All courses are arranged in defined sections with navigation controls allowing you to control the pace of your training. This allows students to learn at their own pace around their schedule.
