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.

Hope this helps!!

If you want to become a cyber security analyst, it is recommended to go for cyber security certification course today.

Thank you!
