gtslearning is excited to support the CompTIA CSA+ (Cybersecurity Analyst) exam with CAQC-approved learning content and revision tools.

CompTIA CSA+ Cybersecurity Analyst CS0-001 key facts

CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) is an international, vendor-neutral IT professional certification that applies behavioral analytics to improve the overall state of IT security. It validates the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization, with the end goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization.

CompTIA CSA+ bridges the skills gap between CompTIA Security+ and the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exam and creates a vendor-neutral certification path.

The CSA+ exam is performance based and includes hands-on simulations. These simulations require test takers to perform security analyst job tasks during the exam. To prepare for these performance-based questions, trainers, educators and publishers should emphasize open-source analytics tools, teamwork and cyberwarfare exercises with red teams as pen testers and blue teams as security analysts/incident responders.

Exam facts:

  • CS0-001 (pass score 750 on scale of 100-900)
  • Maximum of 85 multiple choice and performance-based questions
  • 165 minute maximum exam duration
