A Security Analyst detects and prevents cyber threats to an organization. That means your job will involve ferreting out weaknesses in your infrastructure (software, hardware, and networks) and finding creative ways to protect your company. In the morning, you might be researching the effectiveness of new security measures. In the afternoon, you might be dealing with an active security threat. In a small organization, you could also be handling Security Administrator tasks.

It can be quite an active & engaging role. Security Analysts often acquire a dizzying array of technical skills and gain plenty of experience in pen testing, intrusion detecting, auditing, and more. Some choose to stay in the job for most of their careers, while others use it as a stepping stone to higher-level opportunities, including top management positions (e.g. CISO).
