    Security Analyst

    Security analyst is one of the top job needs right now, and many professionals believe this is a good place to begin a career in cybersecurity. “With artificial intelligence and automation technologies transforming cybersecurity, it will be easier for entry-level security analysts to perform more investigative responsibilities as relevant context and intelligence of threats will be provided to them automatically,” said Peter Kaloroumakis, CTO with BluVector.

    The security analyst position merges together two fields: the “police and crimes” with the “inner geek,” Roy Katmor, CEO and co-founder of enSilo, added. “Whereas fighting the bad guys moves on to the cyber world, there’s a big challenge here as they’re fighting unknown folks, and on the other hand, merges multiple disciplines challenging their technological skills.”

Anywhere high-tech is used creates a demand for security technology professionals. “We need to make sure every door has a lock, so to speak,” said PK Agarwal, regional dean and CEO of Northeastern University-Silicon Valley and former CTO for California under Governor Schwarzenegger.

Security professionals are in demand right now. Entry-level security jobs, according to Corey Wilburn, security practice manager at DataEndure, fall into either an engineer or analyst role.

“An engineer role would be primarily accountable for the deployment, integration and maintenance of technology-based security controls,” Wilburn explained. “An analyst, on an incident response or security operations team, would handle the review of data feeds generated by technology-based security controls to track down potential malicious activity within an organization.”

Every career path needs a starting point, but these security jobs could take you down the road to a C-level position someday.
