As attackers have learnt 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 behavioural 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 UK Government predicts that information security analysts will be the fastest growing overall job category, with 37 percent overall growth between 2012 and 2022.
