Course Description

In this course, you will gain experience in the five major learning domains in the CompTIA CySA+, which include threat and vulnerability management, software and systems security, security operations and monitoring, incident response and compliance and assessment. This course includes illustrative written material, study flashcards, a glossary of key terms, video lessons that cover practice exam questions, virtual labs that align with the exam material, and challenge questions that give you all the practice you'll need to pass the exam. Beyond exam day, you will gain an understanding of the topics covered so that you can apply them in real-world scenarios. The material prepares you for various cybersecurity work roles, such as Systems Security Analyst, Threat Analyst, and Vulnerability Assessment Analyst.

This intermediate-level CySA+ course focuses on analysis and defense techniques leveraging data and tools to identify risks to an organization and apply effective mitigation strategies. They CySA+ is an approved baseline certification of the DoD Directive 8570.

While there are no specific prerequisites for you to take this course or sit for the CompTIA CySA+ exam, it’s recommended that students have knowledge of topics covered in the preceding CompTIA certifications such as A+, Network+ and Security+. You will have the best chance of success if you follow the cybersecurity pathway set up by CompTI, in which you have sat in for these prior exams before taking the CySA+. In addition, you should have computer skills and knowledge of computer networking.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand threat management and how to apply threat management techniques
  • Understand vulnerability management and how to apply vulnerability management techniques
  • Understand the process of cyber incident response
  • Recognize security architecture and toolsets
  • Determine which tools and technologies should be used given a specific scenario


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certfication. It applies behavioral analytics to networks and devices to help prevent, detect and combat cyber threats

A Cyber Security Analyst protects an organization or a business by employing various techniques and technologies to prevent, detect and manage cyber threats and weaknesses.

A Cyber Security Analyst:

  • Evaluates emerging cyber security threats
