Security Infrastructure and Operations Concepts


Knowledge of cybersecurity infrastructure and operations is essential for a cybersecurity analyst to effectively assess risks, detect threats, respond to incidents, and develop appropriate security controls. Without this knowledge, analysts may struggle to effectively protect an organization's IT environment. In this series, you will be introduced to cybersecurity infrastructure and operations concepts such as Log Ingestion, IAM, Encryption, and others.

WEBVTT Hey there everyone, welcome to the CYSA+, or CSO exam series here from ITPro at ACI Learning. I will be one of the SMEs that you will see throughout this course. My name is Daniel Lowry. Glad to meet you, I'm glad you're here. I will be accompanied by a couple of other gentlemen that will also be SME'ing throughout your series, which will be Anthony Sequera as well as Wes Bryan. We will also be accompanied by our gracious host, one Miss Sophia Goodwin, and together we will do our best to help you navigate the waters of the objectives and domains throughout your CYSA+, series. That said, you might be wondering, what are we going to cover? Well, we're going to cover everything we possibly can to help you get prepared for that series. This is going to be things like security operations. How do we do a day-to-day job as a cybersecurity analyst? What does that look like? What are some of the tools and techniques they use to do their jobs and as well as prepare you for those exam questions? Other things we're going to look at, incident response and management, a very important part of the cybersecurity toolkit for any budding cybersecurity analyst out there, as well as vulnerability management, also another very important one, and reporting and communication, which cannot be stressed enough honestly. It is something that we have to get very good at giving the reports to the people that need them in a way that makes sense to them so that they can enact and use the cybersecurity techniques and tools and tactics that we give them to help mitigate and remediate any possible threats to their networks. So that said, let's talk a little bit as well about the course, not the course, but the exam itself. There's going to be a few questions, multiple choice, some of them are performance-based as well. You can definitely check out more description, more details is the word I'm looking for on the CompTIA website, but I'll just give you a quick rundown of some of those lovely things. They are definitely going to be a maximum of 85 questions, multiple choice and performance-based. As I said, the length of the test will be 165 minutes, plenty of time, so hopefully to get you through that. A passing score will be of a 750 on a scale from 100 to 900. They do recommend some experience with this. If you're brand spanking new, maybe you'll have a little bit of catch-up to play, but not to fret. They do say the network plus or security plus or equivalent knowledge should get you as a nice baseline to be prepared. So if you have that equivalent knowledge, you should be good to go. Other thing is that the languages are in English and Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish to follow. It's coming up. And of course, retirement is also to be determined. But there you go, a little bit of the details there about the exam itself. I'll tell you what though, I'm super excited to be a part of this. It is a lot of fun. I really enjoy cybersecurity because I've been doing it for quite some time. And hopefully myself and Wes and Anthony and Sophia, we can all help lend to you our experience, our knowledge, so that you can get that passing score on the exam. So that sounds awesome. We hope you do think that and we do look forward to seeing it in the upcoming series.
