Information Security Analyst Jobs in Illinois

Develop and implement defensive measures to protect computer networks and systems. Information security analysts watch over companies’ computer networks in order to identify any breaches. When a breach occurs, they investigate the intrusion, install firewalls and/or encryption criteria to prevent similar violations from occurring in the future, and prepare a report documenting the issue and the damage caused. In order to minimize these situations, they utilize penetration tests to simulate attacks and seek out weaknesses in security.

Because the field of information technology (IT) is constantly changing, security analysts must continually research new developments to stay up to date on resources and trends. They use this knowledge to form security and best practice standards, advise management personnel on potential security modifications, and contribute to the company’s disaster recovery plan.
