The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 32% from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. As one of the highest-paid jobs in the field, security analysts must become masters of all trades, becoming “all-around defenders,” highly competent in threat detection, while maintaining excellent analytical and communication skills. But what are the technical and nontechnical skills required to acquire mastery in this role? And how can industry security solutions augment analysts’ capabilities to become more effective?

In this webcast, SANS author, instructor, and analyst Ismael Valenzuela will answer these questions and discuss the top skills that security analysts need. Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper.
