Information Security Analysts

Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take as many computer science classes as possible—particularly in database management, programming, and software design. Try to obtain hands-on experience by joining your school’s computer club, helping out in the computer lab, and simply playing around with computers. You should also take English and speech classes because analysts need strong communication skills to write detailed reports, explain their solutions to security issues to top managers and executives, and interact effectively with coworkers. Other recommended classes include business, mathematics, science, and social studies.
