Data security analysts must possess a thorough understanding of all aspects of computer and network security, including such areas as firewall administration, encryption technologies and network protocols. Analysts need strong oral and written communication, analytical and problem-solving skills, as well as excellent judgment and self-motivation. It is important that candidates keep abreast of industry security trends and developments, as well as applicable government regulations. Employers generally seek a bachelor’s degree in a computer-related field, along with at least three years of practical information security experience. A professional certification such as the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) designation is also a valuable asset.
