Cyber Security Analyst and Enterprise Architecture

CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) is an international, vendor-neutral cybersecurity certification that applies behavioral analytics to improve the overall state of IT security. CSA+ validates critical knowledge and skills that are required 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 CSA+ identify and combat malware, and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in enhanced threat visibility across a broad attack surface. CompTIA CSA+ is for IT professionals looking to gain the following security analyst skills:

  • Configure and use threat detection tools.
  • Perform data analysis.
  • Interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization.

CSA+ certified skills are in-demand Properly trained IT security staff who can analyze, monitor and protect cybersecurity resources are in high demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts that information security analysts will be the fastest growing overall job category, with 37 percent overall growth between 2012 and 2022.

CSA+ is globally recognized CompTIA CSA+ is ISO/ANSI 17024 accredited and is awaiting approval by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.

CSA+ provides substantial earnings potential A career in information security analysis ranked seventh on U.S. News and World Report’s list of the 100 best technology jobs for 2017. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for an information security analyst is $90,120 per year.

CSA+ is industry supported CSA+ is developed and maintained by leading IT security experts. Content for the exams stems from a combination of industry-wide survey feedback and contributions from our team of subject matter experts.
