Overview

Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+)

Your 4-day accelerated Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification course teaches you the knowledge and skills required to perform a host of tasks related to securing and protecting applications and systems within an organisation.

Our experienced instructors will teach you, through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review approach, to configure threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organisation.

Cyber security analytics vastly improves your threat visibility by focusing on network behaviour, including an organisation’s interior network. These threats are better detected through analytics.

On this accelerated CySA+ course you will focus on the following four cyber security domains:

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

This course is aimed at cyber security professionals with at least two to three years of on-the-job experience.

The training incorporates hands-on practical work in the form of virtual labs and software tools. This approach will accelerate your learning and will help retain your new found knowledge.

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) exam is on site and includes a performance-based assessment.
