This entry-level CompTIA CySA+ training prepares learners to take the CS0-002 exam, which is the one exam required to earn the CompTIA CySA+ certification.
When a cybersecurity framework built on fire-and-forget policies and sit-and-wait enforcement just isn't enough, enter the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification. CySA+ demonstrates a security professional's competence with providing continuous security monitoring. A CySA+ can prevent, detect and combat threats by applying behavioral analytics to networks and devices -- it's what makes the CySA+ one of the most up-to-date core security analyst skill certifications. When an organization needs proactive capturing, monitoring, and response to network traffic findings, nothing but the cybersecurity certification that emphasizes software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance will do. This training familiarizes IT security professionals with the concepts, knowledge and tools passing the CySA+ exam depends on.
For IT managers, this CompTIA training can be used for CS0-002 exam prep, onboarding new security professionals, individual or team training plans, or as a CompTIA reference resource.
