In the first part of this article series we covered the skills that a network security analyst should have in order to do their job properly. Now, this second part of the article will put these skills into context by simulating a "day in the life" of a network security analyst. I will give real life examples of why you need the specific skills that I noted earlier. Following this will be a brief discussion on the value of certification, and some of the ones I would suggest. Wrapping up the article will be some of the advanced skill sets that an analyst should strive for, and an indication of the small list of places one can go to learn them due to their complexity.

Security Analysts were the exotic part of the security field back then. You can feel it even in the tone of the author hehe
