CySA+: Renewal requirements

Introduction

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certification is valid for three years from the day of passing the exam. After that, a candidate must complete the CySA+ renewal requirements to maintain his or her certification. All renewal requirements must be completed by the expiration date to avoid your CySA+ expiration or decertification.
