Today I completed my first training module in order to get prepared for the CompTIA CyberSecurity Analyst plus exam. When first starting out, I used LinkedIn learning for a source of study material, now that I have gotten what I needed from that source I decided to now switch over to Udemy courses. Using different sources to study can help you understand and digest complicated concepts. This exam as stated by CompTIA is for individuals with 1-3 years of experience in the cyber security field, but I feel confident in my knowledge to take this exam and successfully pass it. This exam focuses on the blue team side of cyber security which I feel is important to understand if I want to be a well-rounded red team member. To some this can get overwhelming, studying every day after an 8-hour shift for 3-4 hours a day, but I honestly love learning all these concepts and get joy out being able to see these lessons being applied in everyday life. I will do a follow up post in a few days after evaluating my knowledge level when taking a few practice tests. Thank you for reading this post and watching me grow into a cyber security expert.
