What is CompTIA CySA+ Course?

This book is designed to cover the four domains included in the CySA+:

Chapter 1: Thread Management

The book starts by teaching you how to assess cyber security threats, as well as how to evaluate and select controls to keep your networks and systems secure.

Chapter 2: Vulnerability Management

Program Managing vulnerabilities helps to keep your systems secure. In this chapter you will learn how to identify, prioritize, and re mediate vulnerabilities using a well-defined workflow and continuous assessment methodologies.

Chapter 3: Cyber Incident Response

In this chapter, you will learn about three major categories of symptoms and Recovery and Post-Incident Analysis. First, you will learn about network events, including malware beaconing, unexpected traffic, and link failures, as well as network attacks. Next, you will explore forensic analysis. You will learn how to build a forensic capability and how the key tools in a forensic toolkit are used.

Chapter 4: Security Architecture and Tool Sets

A strong security architecture requires layered security procedures, technology, and processes to provide defense in depth. In this chapter you will learn how to design a layered security architecture and how to analyze security designs for flaws, you will learn how to acquire intelligence about an organization using popular tools and techniques.
