CySA+ Certification Boot Camp

Our 4-day CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst CySA+ Certification Boot Camp covers how to apply behavioral analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect and combat cybersecurity threats.

As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, such as firewalls, an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry is increasingly important for most organizations. The behavioral analytics skills covered by CySA+ identify and combat malware, and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in enhanced threat visibility across a broad attack surface.

  • Vendor Interpretation Techniques

 

What tools should candidates be familiar with in order to take the exam?

Candidates should know Wireshark, Bro and/or Snort at the very least.

Do I need to know a programming language for this exam, and if so, which one(s)?

It depends on your situation. XML is used to create the drivers in the AlienVault security information and event management (SIEM) platform, for example, and can be customized. However, your primary job is to identify vulnerabilities introduced on the network as a result of poor programming in languages like C and C++, which are harder to secure.

I have CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+. Can I go straight to CySA+ instead of getting CompTIA Security+?

You can, but it’s not recommended. Each CompTIA certification builds on the previous one, and skipping Security+ could leave a gap in your baseline cybersecurity skills. We recommend having a minimum of three to four years of hands-on information security or related experience before taking the CySA+ exam.

Why is CySA+ a separate certification rather than an enhancement of Security+?

CySA+ includes more analytics with a different focus to address the growing specialization in cybersecurity. Security+ is a baseline of general cybersecurity knowledge and skills.

How much does CySA+ overlap with CASP?

About 25 to 30 percent of the content overlaps, mainly under the topics of intrusion detection and vulnerability management.

How does CySA+ compare to other popular cybersecurity certifications?

CySA+ differs from others on the market because it’s a mid-level certification that focuses on security analytics for the security analyst job role. Many other certifications out there don't go into as much detail with analytics. CySA+ also focuses on defense, or “blue team,” cybersecurity skills rather than offense, or “red team,” skills.

I need to renew my Security+ certification. If I pass CySA+ or CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP), will that renew it?

Yes, CySA+ and CASP both renew Security+, since they are considered higher-level certifications.

 

CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is for cyber security professionals that perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization.

This vendor-neutral certification is considered intermediate to mid-career and will prove to organizations that you have the knowledge and skills needed to spearhead cybersecurity operations, either as a standalone information security professional or as part of a security team.

Job roles such as Security analyst, Security operations center (SOC) analyst, Vulnerability analyst, Cybersecurity specialist, Threat intelligence analyst, Security engineer, Cybersecurity analyst and so on.

While our Training Camp boot camps were developed with the expectation that students do not have enough time to complete a rigorous self-study syllabus prior to attending class, we offer students that feel that extra preparation would be helpful a targeted list of self-study objectives that can be completed.

Candidates for this certification should have Network+, Security+ or equivalent knowledge. Minimum of 3-4 years of hands-on information security or related experience. While there is no required prerequisite, CySA+ is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus.

The Training Camp was EXTREMELY helpful in making sure that the exams were passed. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with.
Jonathan Youngson Spalding
I would highly recommend using Training Camp for this type of training but be prepared to work hard and do your prep work before the training because it is a very hard exam with a very wide area of knowledge being tested.
MT AutoVin Inc
Although the course material is tough and sometimes seems daunting the instructors are effective in getting through it. The lectures seem to flow very well and not be to overwhelming. I and all my classmates were extremely happy.
Daniel Y UPS
I have rarely been this impressed and satisfied with a training course or training vendor!
Rich Hardt NYCHPD
The Training Camp experience was well organized and super-informative. The instructor's experience and ability to communicate made the training worth more than it's weight in gold! I highly recommend the CISSP course at Training Camp!
CL SecureStrux, LLC
CISSP instructor Ross Everett-knowledgeable, thorough and very easily understood. The location of class room was great in the metro D.C. Area. Hotel package was a fantastic deal. Going to return for cloud certs in no time.
Jia Hedman Leidos
I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.
