Overview

On this accelerated 8-day CompTIA Security Analytics Professional (CSAP) course, you'll get the knowledge and skills required to troubleshoot security incidents, cyber security legal policies and procedures and how to secure and protect applications and systems within an organisation.

Combining theory and practice from official CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ curricula, your expert instructor will guide you through how to provide infrastructure and operational security through risk analysis and mitigation. You'll learn about the following CompTIA Security+ topics:

  • Network Security
  • Compliance and Operational Security
  • Threats and Vulnerabilities
  • Application, Data and Host Security
  • Access Control and Identity Management
  • Cryptography

You'll build on the security knowledge gained from Security+ and focus on how to configure threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organisation using the four cyber security domains:

  • Threat Management
  • Vulnerability Management
  • Cyber Incident Response
  • Security Architecture and Tool Sets

Immersing you in the course through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, you'll get a minimum of 12 hours quality training per day.
