Frequently Asked Questions

Cyber security analysts (also called information security analysts) plan and carry out security measures to protect a company’s computer networks and systems. They keep constant tabs on threats and monitor their organization’s networks for any breaches in security.

 

Most jobs in cyber security don’t require any knowledge of code, just networks and OS administration.

Here are some positions typically held by those new to the field:

Information and Security Analyst: It is one of the most common listings for an entry-level cyber security job. Information and security analysts are in charge of security measures that protect computer networks and information, from planning and implementing to upgrading and monitoring.

Junior Penetration Tester: This is a “good hacker” kind of job, where testers actively try to defeat a company’s security controls, evaluate the effectiveness of an organization’s defense systems and report on actual or potential weak spots. Specialties can include networks and web and mobile applications.

Network and Computer Systems Administrator: This role can be boiled down to keeping a network functional. Often, it includes tasks such as monitoring access logs, implementing and verifying network-based backups, carrying out measures to protect the network and identifying suspicious activities.
