Overview

An Information Security Analyst works to protect an organization’s computer systems networks, to prevent hackers from accessing and/or stealing sensitive information and data. The job of an Information Security Analyst typically involves installing firewalls and data encryption software to protect confidential information. They also monitor their organization’s network for security breaches and investigate a violation when one occurs. Information Security Analysts may also conduct penetration testing, which is when they simulate attacks to look for vulnerabilities in their networks before they can be exploited.
