Course Description

The Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification is a vendor-neutral IT professional certification that validates knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis, interpreting the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risk to an organization with the end goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization. The CSA+ certification applies behavioral analytics to the IT security market to improve the overall state of IT security. Analytics have been successfully integrated in the business intelligence, retail and financial services industries for decades. Analytics are now applied to IT security. Cybersecurity analytics greatly improves threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization’s interior network. Threats are better detected using analytics. CSA+ is a vendor-neutral IT professional certification and the recommended first professional-level certification for IT security-analyst professionals. The performance-based CSA+ exam will include hands-on simulations. These simulations require test-takers to perform security analyst job tasks during the exam. To prepare for these performance-based assessments, trainers, educators and publishers should emphasize open-source analytics tools and teamwork. Use net wars or cyberwarfare scenarios with red teams as pen testers, white teams as security analysts, and blue teams as incident responders.
