Information Security Analyst from ravi teja's blog

If a career determining what computer security measures a company needs sounds interesting, consider becoming an information security analyst. These analysts investigate computer security breaches, create and execute security procedures and policies, install protection equipment and software, run scenarios to find weak areas, research current technology threats and document activities.


To gain employment as an information security analyst, a bachelor's degree in a computer field and related work experience are required. Master of Business Administration degrees are sometimes also preferred by employers. Increased demand for information security analysts will cause the field to grow by 31% between 2019 and 2029, according to the BLS. These security professionals should receive a median yearly wage of $99,730, as seen in a 2019 BLS report.

Most employers prefer that candidates have at least a bachelor's degree in a field related to the industry. For jobs in a technical field, degrees in information science, computer science or engineering are required, while business environments typically require a degree in management information systems. Increasingly employers are seeking those with an MBA plus a concentration in information systems. Because business and interpersonal skills are vital, graduates with non-technical degrees who have completed courses in computer programming and other information technology fields are also attractive to potential employers.
