CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is a certification for cyber professionals tasked with incident detection, prevention and response through continuous security monitoring.
The skills that today’s security analysts need to protect organisations are different than the skills they had just a few years ago. CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification has evolved to help organisations address, monitor and respond to threats and manage risk. Specifically, candidates will gain skills in security operations, vulnerability management, incident response and management and reporting and communication.
Professionals certified with CompTIA CySA+ are able to confidently lead incident detection, prevention and response in job roles like security analyst, security operations center (SOC) analyst, incident response analyst, vulnerability management analyst, security engineer and threat hunter.
CompTIA CySA+ (CS0-003) has been updated to reflect the latest in security analyst techniques, such as automated incident response, threat intelligence, cloud-based tools and communication processes.
Upon passing the optional exam, successful candidates will be able to:
Detect and analyse indicators of malicious activity
Understand threat hunting and threat intelligence concepts
Use appropriate tools and methods to manage, prioritise and respond to attacks and vulnerabilities
Perform incident response processes
