Booklist -Information Security Analyst

Cover: Information Security Analyst

The entry into the Cool STEM Careers series begins with a scene out of a suspense movie: an information security analyst helps track down a corporate spy searching for confidential information about a new product the corporation is developing. From there, Mara writes about both the content and the requirements of the job, making it clear that the best analysts constantly seek out shifts and developments in computers and other technology. Mara also states that it is a growing field, one that will require more expertise as computer hackers get more sophisticated. Mara also explains why some personality traits—including trustworthiness, patience, and excellent communication skills—are crucial to this career. Standard back matter includes a short list of well-known security analysts including—who knew?—Julius Caesar.
