The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) Online Course covers the latest CS0-002 examination syllabus. CySA+ is designed for IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts, or threat intelligence analysts who want to cover the configuration and use of threat detection tools. 

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) Certification is an international, vendor-neutral cybersecurity certification that applies behavioural analytics to improve the overall state of IT security. CySA+ validates critical knowledge and skills that are required to prevent, detect, and combat cybersecurity threats. Attackers have become more sophisticated in evading traditional solutions such as firewalls and anti-virus software, which is why an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry is increasingly important.
