Self-Study Online Labs are provided by Practice Labs.
The CompTIA CySA+ Self-Study Online Labs will provide you with a platform to gain hands on skills in information security.
By completing the lab tasks you will improve your practical skills in configuring and using threat detection tools, data analysis, identifying vulnerabilities, identifying threats, and risks, and securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization. These same tasks will help you understand the objectives and competencies required by the CompTIA CySA+ certification exam (CS0-001).
CompTIA CySA+ Cybersecurity Analyst is an intermediate certificate aimed at IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts, threat intelligence analysts, or IT professionals seeking to advance into the industry.
This Self-Study Online Lab focuses on the practical aspects of the exam objectives. It is therefore advised to refer to your own course materials to gain a deeper understanding of any theoretical aspects of the exam objectives. It is also recommended that you have taken and passed the CompTIA Security+ SY0-401/SY0-501 certification exam before beginning your CySA+ studies.
No prior hands-on experience is required to use or complete this Self-Study Online Lab, however we have assumed that you know how to use a computer and that you are familiar with basic networking technologies and information security concepts.
