CompTIA CySA+ Labs

CompTIA CySA+ Labs

CompTIA certifications are ideal for beginners who want to pass a vendor-neutral exam. They are required if you want to work in any government role, including for companies that subcontract on government work.

Much of the CySA+ exam relies on your hands-on experience configuring and troubleshooting penetration testing tools and software. CySA+ labs will give you that knowledge and confidence. We walk you through every aspect of the syllabus, explaining the tools you can use and how to configure them.

101 Labs – CompTIA CySA+ has been updated for the latest exam syllabus:

  • CS0-003 – CompTIA CySA+

CompTIA CySA+ Labs

We take you by the hand and guide you through the CompTIA CySA+ exam syllabus topics. There is more than $400 worth of practice exams included guaranteeing your success come exam day.

CySA+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.

The CySA+ exam features both hands-on, performance-based questions and multiple-choice questions. You must know both theory and practical application. For the role, you must not only proactively capture, monitor, and respond to network traffic findings but also understand software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance, which affects the daily work of security analysts.

The CySA+ engineer is expected to understand the most up-to-date core security analyst skills used by threat intelligence analysts, application security analysts, compliance analysts, incident responders/handlers, and threat hunters, bringing new techniques for combating threats inside and outside of the Security Operations Center (SOC).

Cybersecurity Analysts can work from home both full-time, part-time, or as a freelancer. Study this course in conjunction with Linux, Ethical Hacking, Wireshark, and Security+ to really boost your knowledge and skill set.

This course shows you how to carry out security scans on the network to find vulnerabilities and analyze results. You learn how to use common hacking and defense tools as well as Kali Linux. It’s all hands-on, so if you want to learn the theory, please check out our sister website howtonetwork.com for the CySA+ theory course.

Follow along every step of the way as our expert instructor shares tips and secrets you can use not only to pass the exam but to succeed in the real world of internetworking.

Take this course if you:

  • Want to lay a foundation for a career in security
  • Are new to the world of IT security and want to learn all the basics
  • Don’t feel ready for advanced exams such as Certified Ethical Hacker
  • Want an understanding of network security, hacking tools, and technology
  • Want to gain confidence in your hands-on IT skills
  • Want to gain an edge in your CySA+ exam
