====================

As noted in the 25 June Chapter ONE, ISACA has identified an underserved market of cybersecurity analysts who need to develop and validate their knowledge and skills.

  • Please help spread the word about a new, unique opportunity!

The details:

  • ISACA is seeking individuals to participate in a beta program for a new cybersecurity certification in development: Certified Cybersecurity Operations Analyst (CCOA).

  • Professionals who are accepted to participate in ISACA’s CCOA beta program will gain a deep understanding of/skills for identifying and responding to cyber threats, performing vulnerability assessments, and guidance on industry best practices for securing assets.

  • Exam passers will be recognized as CCOA certification holders.

Who qualifies:

The beta will consist of a limited number of approved applicants who:

  • Have two to three years of cybersecurity experience,

  • Are able to perform technical cybersecurity tasks, and

  • Can prepare for and sit for the exam by 30 September 2024.

  • Approved volunteers must purchase the beta materials at the discounted rate of US$299.

What to expect:

  • QAE, Review Manual, Exam: Selected participants will purchase the Questions, Answers, and Explanations (QAE) with 13 hands-on labs at the discounted rate of US$299 and receive a voucher to obtain the review manual and exam for free (a savings for members of nearly US$500 off the upcoming launch prices). Vouchers will be emailed after purchase of the QAE.

  • Participants may also purchase the online review course at a reduced price of US$199 (a savings for members of US$350). Purchase of the online review course is not required to participate.

What is next:

  • Applicants may apply for the CCOA beta program now through 31 July 2024.

  • Applications will be reviewed, and individuals who are selected for the limited program will receive details to begin the beta 1 August 2024.
