The Career Progression Route for Students

The career path initially starts as Cybersecurity Analyst whose responsibilities include: monitoring computer systems, looking for anomalies and potential abnormal events, and then escalating them to resolve those anomalies. An analyst monitors network systems and logs to root out anything of concern after which they route it to the appropriate individual on their team. After working as a Cybersecurity analyst for 2-5 years, most Cybersecurity professionals move up to mid-level Cybersecurity roles as architects. Cybersecurity architect roles include Penetration Tester (also known as Pen Testers), Certified Ethical Hacker, and Threat Hunter. After working as a Cybersecurity Architect for 15 years, most Cybersecurity professionals move up to  Senior-level Cybersecurity roles as Senior Manager of IT & Security Compliance, Director of IT Security, Senior Manager, and Senior Director. A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
