CompTIA CySA+

EXAM CODE CS0-001

About CySA+

CySA+ is the only intermediate high-stakes cybersecurity analyst certification with performance-based questions covering security analytics, intrusion detection and response. High-stakes exams are proctored at a Pearson VUE testing center in a highly secure environment. CySA+ is the most up-to-date security analyst certification that covers advanced persistent threats in a post-2014 cybersecurity environment.

As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, such as firewalls, an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry is increasingly important for most organizations. The behavioral analytics skills covered by CySA+ identify and combat malware, and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in enhanced threat visibility across a broad attack surface.

CompTIA CySA+ meets the ISO 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements. It is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.

Why is it different?

CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certification that applies behavioral analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect and combat cybersecurity threats.

Why should I do the CySA+?

If you are currently working or trying to apply for a position in the cybersecurity field and want a well-respected professional certification to add to your resume, while at the same time expanding upon your existing cybersecurity knowledge, the CompTIA CySA+ may be a good option for you.

Whenever you look at professional certifications, you want to know if it is well-known and respected in the field. The CompTIA CySA+ was released in early 2017 but has since gained a lot of respect in the field. The CompTIA CySA+ is a vendor-neutral certification which allows it to hold more value across a variety of job categories. It is also one of the DoD 8570 baseline certifications, which further increases its respect and validity in the field. The CompTIA CySA+ has become very popular across the Cybersecurity workforce.
