Frequently Asked Questions

You will earn the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification by passing one exam that includes both multiple-choice and performance-based questions. Read on for some common-sense advice that can increase your chance to succeed in your exam and achieve CompTIA CySA+ certification status.

In its very basic nature, the CompTIA CySA+ exam is not that much different from any other written test that you may have taken to date. The exam uses various types of questions to verify your knowledge in these specific areas:

  • Configuring and using threat detection tools
  • Performing data analysis
  • Interpreting the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization

Being well-prepared remains your best bet to score a positive exam outcome, namely passing the test and being awarded the CompTIA CySA+ certification.

While individual preferences on how to prepare for a test may differ in detail, there’s a simple strategy that can get you started and help keep yourself organized during your exam preparation process.

Not knowing what’s on the exam is like driving blind into a snow storm. A better approach is to spend some time reading about CompTIA CySA+ and what it takes to pass the exam. The more details you know about the questions you will have to answer, the better you will be able to judge what you already know and what you still need to learn. Needless to say, you may also gain confidence when you’re taking the test.

CompTIA CySA+ exam-takers come from all walks of life with various experience levels in IT and cybersecurity. Although there are no prerequisites for CompTIA CySA+, we recommend a minimum of three-to-four years of hands-on information security or related experience before taking the exam.

CompTIA CySA+ is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus. The degree of experience and the quality of experience in cybersecurity and analysis you’ve already acquired has a substantial impact on the knowledge gap between what you know and what’s expected of you to know.

While some exam takers may have very little additional knowledge they need to acquire, others with little blue team experience may have to invest significant time and effort in their exam studies.

Regardless of experience, everyone needs to take inventory of the exam areas that they don’t know or know little about. Being honest with yourself will help you focus on what you need to learn and, ultimately, make your studies more effective.
