Overview

Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+)

Your 3-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.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CySA+ courses
  2. You'll be CySA+ certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CySA+ trained in record time
  3. Our CySA+ course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CySA+ first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn CySA+ faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying CySA+ with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,239 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
