CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) Certification Training Course Overview

The CompTIA CySA+ exam is an internationally targeted validation of intermediate-level security skills and knowledge. While there is no required prerequisite, the CompTIA CySA+ certification is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, “hands-on” focus on IT security analytics. The CompTIA CySA+ examination is designed for IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts,or threat intelligence analysts. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization with theend goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization.

This course supports a certification that is a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification and meets DoD 8570 training requirements
