Cybersecurity certification is one of the hottest IT related certifications. The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst, also known as CompTIA CySA+, is a CompTIA certification. CySA+ is focused on the knowledge and skills required to perform the following:
Securing an organization’s applications and systems is the primary goal of a Cybersecurity Analyst.
The CompTIA CySA+ is a vendor-neutral certification. A student normally has three to four years of experience in a related field as well as a Security+ or equivalent knowledge. In this regard, the CompTIA CySA+ lies between the CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exams. It is an excellent go-between to tackle before diving into the CASP, but when the CompTIA Security+ isn’t enough.
Cybersecurity certification is an ongoing requirement for government agencies. The CompTIA CySA+ was developed with a focus on meeting government requirements to certify IT, workers or contractors. With a Cybersecurity certification, you display an understanding of security best practices and protocols beyond that which is provided by the Security+ certification. You will prove a level of expertise beyond that of basic security practices that are followed when using a computer. This allows any employee to prove a better understanding of enterprise security practices, and the necessary tools needed to protect a company network. The modules of this course align with the official objectives of the certification. The course expands past the scope of the certification. It also provides real-life examples and lead-ins to direct further study. This will give students an easier understanding of the material for the certification as well as a basic understanding to apply to real-life applications.
We encourage you to visit the CompTIA website for full details on the CySA+ certification and exam code CS0-001.
