Skills in demand: Security analytics specialists

As organizations collect increasing amounts of data related to security and IT risk, the demand for security analytics specialists is high. These skills are valuable when it comes to discovering, managing and configuring security assets, as well as building a clearer view of threats.

What it takes

By interpreting large security data sets, organizations are finding ways to increase efficiency and develop new protection strategies. 


While demand is high, qualified talent is limited, so compensation is higher than average with bases ranging from $140K to $180K, plus incentives.
