TCP/IP skills required for security analysts
Breaking into the network security industry, and finding a job as a computer security analyst can often be a daunting task. A great deal of us who work in the industry started down this path with nothing but an interest in computer security to begin with, and a desire to work in a field that we love. The question of how does one seek employment in this job sector, and more importantly what skills does one really need to have is a question I have been asked many, many times. One of the wonderful parts about the online community is the spirit of sharing and helping one another. Bearing this is mind I will now attempt to give a far fuller explanation of what I believe to be core skills required in today's security professional. Within the confines of this article the skills that I personally believe one should have at a minimum will be listed, and reviewed briefly to give you an idea of what those skills are.
