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 Official CompTIA CySA+ Guides (Exam CS0-002) are designed for cybersecurity analysts who apply behavioral analytics to networks to improve the overall state of security through identifying and combating malware and advanced persistent threats. These materials focus on teaching an IT professional the ability to proactively defend and continuously improve the security of an organization through leveraging intelligence and threat detection techniques, analyzing and interpreting data, identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, and effectively responding to and recovering from incidents. The CySA+ guide will sufficiently prepare candidates to take the CompTIA CySA+ certification exam.
Prerequisites: Recommended Network+, Security+ or equivalent knowledge. Minimum of 4 years of handson experience 4 years of hands-on experience in technical cybersecurity role.
The course more generally supports candidates working in or moving into job roles such as security operations center (SOC) analyst, vulnerability analyst, cybersecurity specialist, threat intelligence analyst, security engineer, and cybersecurity analyst.
