4 Skills You'll Master with CySA+ Certification
With the release of the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) exam this week, CompTIA will enter uncharted territory. For the first time, a vendor-neutral CompTIA cybersecurity career pathway will exist for IT professionals to achieve cyber security mastery, from beginning to end.
The behavioral analytics skills covered by the CompTIA CySA+ certification identify and combat malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in better threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization's interior network.
In today's computing world, enterprises experience malware attacks, system intrusions, DDOS attacks and countless other threats coming at them from every corner of the web, guided by every imaginable intent. It's an ongoing onslaught that has fundamentally changed how enterprises and SMBs need to approach cybersecurity. Long gone are the days when a malware scanner with semi-regularly updated definitions could hope to stave off an enterprise security breach. The skyrocketing volume and the increasing sophistication of threats means that if enterprises want to stay cybersecure they need to approach the task a little differently - with data on their side and well-trained, insightful IT staff who know how to read it, interpret it and apply it.
Recognizing this cybersecurity sea-change, the top technology professionals from across the industry who act as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) on CompTIA's certifications convened to create a certification that speaks to these new industry needs. The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) certification sets the benchmarks for what a cybersecurity analyst has to know to do the job. And like all of CompTIA's highly-regarded certifications, it's one from which both the IT professionals that do the work and the businesses that rely on them will benefit greatly.
