This part of the Cyber Operations course describes the role of people active in IT Security. If you look closely, there is a job for different profiles.
The SANS Institute (www.sans.org) classifies the roles people play in a SOC into four job titles:
- Tier 1 Alert Analyst – These professionals monitor incoming alerts, verify that a true incident has occurred, and forward tickets to Tier 2, if necessary.
- Tier 2 Incident Responder- These professionals are responsible for deep investigation of incidents and advise remediation or action to be taken.
- Tier 3 Subject Matter Expert (SME)/Hunter – These professionals have expert-level skill in network, endpoint, threat intelligence, and malware reverse engineering. They are experts at tracing the processes of the malware to determine its impact and how it can be removed. They are also deeply involved in hunting for potential threats and implementing threat detection tools.
- SOC Manager – This professional manages all the resources of the SOC and serves as the point of contact for the larger organization or customer.
This course offers preparation for a certification suitable for the position of Tier 1 Alert Analyst, also known as Cybersecurity Analyst.
