"Where Qualified Cyber Education Happens"

SU CompTIA CySA+ Cybersecurity Analyst+ Certification Class

As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions, an analytics-based approach has become extremely important. CompTIA CySA+ certification applies behavioral analytics to the IT security market to improve the overall state of IT security. Analytics have been successfully integrated into the business intelligence, retail and financial services industries for decades. Now they are also applied to IT security. Security analytics greatly improves threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization’s interior network. Threats are better detected using analytics.
