Cybersecurity analyst is a popular job title for CySA+ holders. Almost half of all cybersecurity analysts are in the early stages of their careers, having entered the field 0-4 years ago, so it is a great entry point into a field and a position that will help you launch a career in cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity analysts (CSAs) use analytics tools to design security integration solutions that aid the detection of and response to security incidents. These professionals effectively use behavioral threat assessment tools to analyze risks to the information systems of their organization while ensuring business continuity and the availability of data and services. They also work to identify patterns and expose anomalies that could indicate cyberattacks and then take action to proactively protect against malicious events before they develop.

CompTIA certifications like the Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) are well-known in the industry and among the most requested by hiring managers. Earning your CySA+ certification demonstrates your intermediate-level cybersecurity knowledge and skills in the four domains on the CySA+ exam (CS0-003).

The CySA+ certification can lead to expanded career opportunities, validation of in-demand skills and a pathway for further growth in the cybersecurity field.

The CompTIA CySA+ exam includes up to 85 multiple-choice and performance-based questions, which you have 165 minutes to complete. It is scored on a scale of 100–900, and a passing score is 750.

Your CompTIA CySA+ certification lasts three years from the date you pass the exam. You can renew your CySA+ by earning continuing education units (CEUs), earning a higher level CompTIA certification like the CASP+ or a few other methods (see them all on the CompTIA website). Renewing your CySA+ extends the certification for an additional three years.
