CompTIA CYSA+ (Exam CS0-001)
Course Number: CYSA+ (Canada)
Length: 4 days
The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CYSA+) examination is 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
•Secure and protect applications and systems within an organization
As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, an analytics-based approach has become extremely important. CYSA+ applies behavioral analytics to the IT security market to improve the overall state of security. CYSA+ also bridges the professional level CompTIA Security+ (which targets cybersecurity professionals with at least two years of on-the-job experience) and the mastery level CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner CASP certification (which targets security pros with five or more years of experience).
