The demand for Cyber Security Analysts is expected to be extremely high for the next 5 years. Cyberattacks continue to grow in frequency, and analysts will be needed to combat hackers from stealing critical information or creating problems for computer networks.
A cybersecurity analyst protects company hardware, software, and networks from cybercriminals. The analyst’s primary role is to specialize in network and IT infrastructure security and evaluate threats that could potentially breach the network. The cybersecurity analyst continuously looks for ways to enhance company network security by building a cyber security strategy that ensures compliance to industry best practices and government regulations to protect its sensitive information. The cybersecurity analyst thoroughly understands cyberattacks, malware, and the behavior of cybercriminals. He or she actively seeks to anticipate and prevent these attacks by performing risk and vulnerability assessments, designing defensive architecture and strategies, performing compliance monitoring, and providing remediation strategies.
