CompTIA CSA+ certification acronym changed to CySA+








CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certification that applies behavioral analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect and combat cybersecurity threats.

The CSA+ certification acronym has changed to CySA+. CompTIA and its partners will make the change by June 29th, 2018. The exam ​code will remain the same.

Why is it different?

CySA+ is the only intermediate high-stakes cybersecurity analyst certification with performance-based questions covering security analytics, intrusion detection and response. High-stakes exams are proctored at a Pearson VUE testing center in a highly secure environment. CySA+ is the most up-to-date security analyst certification that covers advanced persistent threats in a post-2014 cybersecurity environment.

About the exam

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.

CompTIA CySA+ is for IT professionals looking to gain the following security analyst skills:
  • Perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization.
  • Configure and use threat-detection tools.
  • Secure and protect applications and systems within an organization.

CompTIA CySA+ meets the ISO 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements. It is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
