Frequently Asked Questions

What does an entry-level Information Security Specialist do every day?
An entry-level Information Security Specialist mainly keeps an eye on computer networks and systems to spot any security problems. They also help with tests to find weaknesses and protect against cyberattacks. They work on making rules to keep things secure and help out when there’s a security problem. They also keep learning about new ways to stay safe online.

What skills do you need to be an entry-level Information Security Specialist?
You should know a bit about how networks stay secure, understand computer systems and security software, and be familiar with things like firewalls and programs that look out for bad activity. Knowing about encryption, which is like putting messages in a secret code, and VPNs, which help keep internet connections private, is also useful. It’s also important to know about common cyber threats, like viruses and hacking tricks.

Is getting a certificate important for an entry-level Information Security Specialist?
Yes, getting a certificate is pretty important because it shows you know what you’re doing when it comes to keeping things safe online. Certificates like CompTIA Security+, Network+, or the Microsoft MTA Security Fundamentals can really help you get started in this field.

What skills should you have that aren’t about computers?
