7 Secrets of Top Performing Threat Analysts

Currently, cyber threats and overall digital exposure is growing at an alarming rate. Enterprises are finding it increasingly challenging to address it properly and in an efficient manner. In fact, cyber threats are escalating to such an extent that banks, government entities, telecommunication enterprises and large companies are forced to allocate the lion’s share of their resources to cybersecurity rather than focus and grow their core competencies. They rely on professionals to analyze, prioritize, test and devise new strategies and tactics to stay ahead of the threat curve.

According to Forbes, there will be 3.5 million cyber security job openings by 2021 and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that Information security analysts can expect an estimated 32% increase in employment from 2018-2028.
