Cybersecurity analyst (sometimes called information security analyst) is likely to be your first role if you’re looking to enter the field of cybersecurity. A cybersecurity analyst's duties can include:
Planning, implementing, upgrading, or monitoring "security measures for the protection of computer networks and information."
Ensuring "appropriate security controls are in place that will safeguard digital files and vital electronic infrastructure."
Responding to "computer security breaches and viruses."
These duties require knowledge in areas such as computers and networks, telecommunications, management and customer service, and a good grasp of the English language.
A typical cybersecurity analyst might spend a workday encrypting data transmissions, reviewing violations of security procedures, and developing plans to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
