An IT worker credential called CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) uses behavioural analytics on networks and devices to prevent, identify, and counteract cybersecurity attacks through ongoing security monitoring.
Why is it unique?
- CompTIA CySA+ is the only intermediate, high-stakes cybersecurity analyst certification that has both multiple-choice questions and performance-based ones.
- In addition to focusing on network traffic findings, CySA+ also highlights software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance, all of which have an impact on security analysts’ day-to-day job.
- CySA+ introduces new methods for fending off threats both inside and outside the Security Operations Center by covering the most recent core security analyst skills and upcoming job skills used by threat intelligence analysts, application security analysts, compliance analysts, incident responders/handlers, and threat hunters (SOC).
About the exam
