This CompTIA CySA+ training course, conducted in San Diego, CA, is designed primarily for cybersecurity practitioners who perform job functions related to protecting information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. The CompTIA CySA+ training focuses on the knowledge, ability, and skills necessary to provide for the defense of those information systems in a cybersecurity context, including protection, detection, analysis, investigation, and response processes. In addition, the course ensures that all members of an IT team (everyone from the help desk staff to the Chief Information Officer) understand their role in these cybersecurity processes.


To ensure your success in this course, you should meet the following requirements:

  • At least two years (recommended) of experience in computer network security technology or a related field.
  • The ability to recognize information security vulnerabilities and threats in the context of risk management.
  • Foundation-level operational skills with some of the common operating systems for computing environments.
  • Foundational knowledge of the concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in computing environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, basic authentication and authorization, resource permissions, and anti-malware mechanisms.
  • Foundation-level understanding of some of the common concepts for network environments, such as routing and switching.
  • Foundational knowledge of major TCP/IP networking protocols, including, but not limited to, TCP, IP, UDP, DNS, HTTP, ARP, ICMP, and DHCP.
  • Foundational knowledge of the concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in network environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and VPNs.

CompTIA Security+ (Exam SY0-501)

CompTIA CySA+ Training Course FAQs

1. What’s the difference between CompTIA CySA+ and Security+? CySA+ is more robust than Security+ because it includes more analytics with a different focus to address the growing specialization in cybersecurity. Security+ is only a baseline of general cybersecurity knowledge and skills.

2. Which is easier, PenTest+ or CySA+? Although both of these certifications are valuable, CySA+ is more suitable for people pursuing careers as cybersecurity analysts or engineers. PenTest+ is better for those who wish to become penetration testers.

3. How long is the CySA+ certification valid? Three years.

4. What jobs can I get with a CySA+ certification? Below are some jobs in which a CySA+ certification will benefit you:

  • Security operations center (SOC) analyst
  • Vulnerability analyst
  • Cybersecurity specialist
  • Threat intelligence analyst
  • Security engineer
  • Cybersecurity analyst
