About the Course
CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an advanced-level certification designed to help IT professionals apply 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 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 organization. CySA+ will verify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to:
