What Information Security Analysts Do
Information security analysts plan and carry out security measures to protect an organizationâ€™s computer networks and systems. Their responsibilities are continually expanding as the number of cyber attacks increases.
Most information security analysts work for computer companies, consulting firms, or business and financial companies.
Employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for information security analysts is expected to be very high, as these analysts will be needed to create innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or causing problems for computer networks.
