The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification verifies that successful candidates have the knowledge and skills required to detect and analyze indicators of malicious activity, understand threat intelligence and threat management, respond to attacks and vulnerabilities, perform incident response, and report and communicate related activity. The Official CompTIA CySA+ course has been rigorously evaluated to validate coverage of the CompTIA CySA+ (CS0-003) exam objectives, The Official CompTIA CySA+ cousrse teaches the knowledge and skills to understand monitor and respond to network traffic findings, software and application security, automation, threat hunting, IT regulatory compliance, and prepare candidates to take the CompTIA CySA+ certification exam.
