Course Description
With the increase in cyberattacks and the number of new connected devices, the need for skilled cybersecurity professionals is growing at a rapid pace. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the number of information security jobs will increase 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, making it one of the fastest-growing fields. Employers, from government to Fortune 500 companies, value CompTIA as an authority in cybersecurity certifications.

The Building Blocks of Cybersecurity

But how do you get into cybersecurity with no experience? If you aren't quite ready to start with CompTIA Security+, then you’ll need to start earlier on the pathway.

If you are new to IT, start with CompTIA IT Fundamentals. It provides a broad understanding of the IT profession. It helps answer the question, “Would I enjoy a career in IT?” If you already know that IT is right for you, begin with CompTIA A+. It validates understanding of the most common hardware devices and software technologies in business and certifies the skills necessary to support complex IT infrastructures. Consider the large number of devices connected to networks that must be supported by IT help desks, including smart phones, internet of things (IoT) devices and laptops.

That fact makes CompTIA Network+ the next logical step. It validates the essential knowledge and skills needed to design, configure, manage and troubleshoot wired and wireless networks. To best support devices that exchange information on your network, you must understand how the network functions.

The progression is logical because CompTIA A+ assesses the KSAs that an IT professional demonstrates after six months of field work, and CompTIA Network+ assesses nine months of field work.
CompTIA Network+ is also an important recommended prerequisite to CompTIA Security+. Before you can secure a network, you must understand how it functions. In other words, you shouldn’t skip algebra to start with calculus. Otherwise, you are learning security skills and applying them to a network you don’t understand.

CompTIA CSA+ fills the skills gap between CompTIA Security+ and the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exam. Until now, many CompTIA Security+ certified professionals waited until they gained at least 5 years of IT security experience before sitting for the CASP exam. Either that, or they branched into vendor-specific exams, such as VMWare, Cisco or Microsoft.

Courses in this series:

Outcome
Upon successful completion, students will be prepared to sit for the following exams:
CompTIA A+ Certification (Exams 220-901 & 220-902); CompTIA Network+ Certification (Exam N10-005); CompTIA Security+ Certification (Exam SYO-401); CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP)

CompTIA CSA+ is for IT professionals looking to gain the following security analyst skills:
  • Configure and use threat detection tool
  • Perform data analysis
  • Interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization


Assessment
Visual Demonstrations & Multimedia Presentations - Our courseware includes instructor video demonstrations and visual presentations that allow students to develop their skills based on real world scenarios explained by the instructor. We always focus on real world scenarios and skill-set development.

Quizzes & Exam Simulators - The custom practice exams prepare you for your exams differently and more effectively than the traditional exam preps on the market. You will have practice quizzes after each module to ensure you are confident on the topic you have completed before proceeding. This will allow you to gauge your effectiveness before moving to the next module in your course. These courses also include practice exams designed to replicate and mirror the environment in the testing center. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared before taking your certification exam.

Live Labs - Our hosted platforms are configured to imitate real world configurations by providing access to sufficient hardware not only to carry out tasks but also test the impact of those changes. From the browser you gain administrative access to the relevant devices giving you complete control to carry out either your own configuration, or follow the lab guides to configure specific technologies that are required.


Required Book(s)
All training is delivered online; no additional purchase required.
