Let's talk a little bit about what stock analysts do. You know what a broad sought security analysts help keep. Keep computing safe and you know I won't read the rest of the slide. You guys could take a look at that as we go along here so I can. Unless they're on the front line in cyber security, they've never experienced the same day twice. There's always a lot going on in a sock,
and they spent a lot of time sifting through data. More specifically, what they spend their days doing is performing constant networking about network monitoring,
doing report and Alan analysis, coordinating with other analysts and apartments regarding the networks that they're working on. Right. A network touches everyone in the business and organization or a company that you may be working for.
The guys spent time performing security audits, internal, external. They're gonna look at threats. There's a lot to Dio as a stock analyst. Additionally, I want to mention 11 piece that you may be thinking about where you may not know about, and that is sometimes sock and let's work on ours. This is something of what it's a share, just a little side note.
You know, you may be asked to work outside the normal work day
this may appeal to you may not appeal to You have to think about that. I should go along to your career path.
let's move on to the next slide
about experience and education, right? This is so critical in cybersecurity. Experience and education are things that cyber friend professionals you're always pursuing. And typically you need a complete package. You need experience education on one piece that we don't specifically call out on this slide, but its inherent ability in heritability I
but you could certainly cultivate
ability. You certainly cultivate skills through coursework like the coursework that we have here in cyber ery, and you could certainly get your credentials. And when we talk about credentials, aguatecture talking about certifications,
okay, we'll talk a little bit more about that later. And Shayne and Mark are gonna share some information with us about certain said about the Siberian cider pro program as well.
Next piece that we want to move on to is building a sock analyst, come here and resume. So now we're kind of getting a little more specific. What we've talked about is globally stock analysts Do you know their experience and education again in a broad sense. But here we're going to get down to a little bit of war detail to take a look at it.
The things that you want to be considering as your building,
your stock analyst, your and your resident,
the key elements that we see through research and the work that we do here it's library is
off the tops cos we're looking for real world experience, and you may be thinking to yourself, I don't have a whole lot of real world experience at this moment. But that's okay.
You know what you do? Is he trying keep getting yourself out there? Keep working on gaining experience in a variety of ways. We'll talk a little bit more about that as we go along classroom learning and here we're talking about some traditional classic classroom learning online learning. Certainly again what we do here. It's library hands on training and it may be nontraditional. Hands on training like
CTO has captured the flags,
labs, hackathons, other events that you by participating in
and they're taking a look at getting some recognized shirts. And we do have great information on the search that the stock analyst for your path program at Cyberia covers. So let's take a look as we go along the next paints that we want to talk about our typical soccer analyst levels and companies. And the reason why we included this
is because we want you got to be forward thinking
be progressive and how you're looking at your career
and the skills that you may be going forward
here. Want to one when we talk about the levels of cos I'm talking about the tears to want to talk to you in 10 3 that most companies have again, this is a generalization. Not every company is going to
to find their sock in this way,
but we have a turn one. We have alert monetary.
It's incident, qualification, triage, etcetera. Here, too, we typically look a incident investigation, remediation and advice.
Tier three. We look at detection and case optimization, et cetera. A little more hunting. Ah, little bit of the deeper investigative work that goes on. And Mark, I'm gonna ask you a couple of questions based on your experience. Is this a fair representation of the tears that we see your company's today.
Yeah, Absolutely. Okay.
Yeah. So did you have anything you wanted to add as well?
Uh, no. I mean, good job dividing up amongst tears. And again I mentioned previously, Uh, socks come in all different shapes and sizes. So sometimes in smaller socks, you know, one thio,
you know, 1 to 2 to three people positions across multiple levels, as described here. But in some of the
order socks where you're talking about working with a couple 100 people, these will definitely be
divided up in the general categories. You're pointing out. You know, some companies a weaver even
outsource. There are level one, level two.
So I can support to a larger socks. So you could be working multiple angles of those various rules.
Nice. Good. Thanks, guys. I know you were facing these things day by day.
