In recent years, we have witnessed an explosive growth of online business transactions, as well as rapid adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing. Coupled with the constant threat of hackers, cyber security professionals are now in great demand globally. 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. Information Security Analysts are also often involved in designing and executing their organization’s disaster recovery plan, which describes the steps and procedures to restore proper function of an organization’s IT systems and networks after a disaster or attack. The plan usually includes preventive measures such as regular backing up of and transfer of data to an offsite location.

Information Security Analysts must keep themselves up-to-date to stay one step ahead of potential cyber-attackers. They need to be keep abreast of the latest methods attackers are using to infiltrate computer systems, as well as new security technologies that can help their companies counter these threats.
