While the Security+ gives the first step into a Cyber security role, the Cyber Security Analyst (CySA+ (CS0-002)) exam is an intermediate level certification that is focused on the Analyst role taking the defensive posture in a cyber security environment. This certification prepares you to be able to proactively capture, monitor, and respond to network traffic findings, as well as considering software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance supporting you to move into a good defensive / analytical Cyber Security role.
The exam is split into five core domains that broadly cover the Cyber Security Analyst role. These domains are:
- Threat and Vulnerability Management
- Software and Systems Security
- Security Operations and Monitoring
- Incident Response
- Compliance and Assessment
During the course you will explore your ability to proactively defend and continuously improve your security posture. You will learn how to leverage intelligence and threat detection techniques, analyse and interpret data, identify and address vulnerabilities, suggest preventative measures and effectively respond to and recover from incidents.
the CompTIA CySA+ (CS0-002) certification is approved by the US Department of Defence to meet the DOD8570.01-M standard and also meets the ISO 17024 standard.
