Day in the Life of a Security Analyst (Part 1)
Over the next three months, the Splunk Security team will be looking at the emerging role and hero of the Security Operations Center (SOC): the security analyst. This role has drastically changed over the past 10 years, and we will observe how a changing threat landscape and advancing technology have redefined what it means to be a security analyst.
We’re publishing our first post to coincide with Data Privacy Day, an annual, international effort aimed at creating awareness about the importance of privacy and protecting personal information. In this post, I speak with Splunk Security Analyst and Researcher, Kathy Wang, to discuss life as a security analyst in the early 2000’s.
