Course Description

This course provides a comprehensive review of security topics and exam preparation for the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+). The CompTIA CySA+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification that validates the skills required to combat malware and threats through the application of behavioral analytics. The examination is considered an intermediate-level credential for cybersecurity professionals. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to: Perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization, Configure and use threat detection tools, and Secure and protect applications and systems within an organization. The behavioral analytics skills covered by the CompTIA CySA+ certification identify and combat malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in better threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization’s interior network. In this course, students review the 5 domains covered by CySA+ including Threat and Vulnerability Management, Software and Systems Security, Security and Operations and Monitoring, Incident Response, Compliance and Assessment. Other topics include the application and testing process as well as key test topics and practice questions. Due to a trademark issue, this certification's acronym was recently changed from CSA+ to CySA+.
