WHAT DO CYBER SECURITY PROFESSIONALS DO?
The world of cyber security includes a whole range of specializations. Here are a few of them.
Security analysts monitor, prevent and stop attacks on private data. In this role, you can expect to spend your days designing and implementing firewalls and other digital security software systems to protect data and network systems across an organization.
Incident Responders/Handlers are responsible for identifying, analyzing, and mitigating security breaches or incidents. They work to minimize damage to a organization's systems and data by investigating the cause and scope of an incident, as well as implementing measures to prevent future attacks.
Security researchers hold one of the most essential roles in cyber security. They design security protocols and study the evolution of unique malware strains that allow other cyber security professionals to monitor and detect vulnerablilities in their networks.
