To get a descent job as security analyst you need to know what work actually they do in there day to day life so please watch the below given video carefully, which will give you a insight about the work life of a security analyst and the role they do in a company as well.

Hope after seeing the video you got at least some idea about the work of a security analyst and responsibilities given to them and how they complete their tasks efficiently. Apart from that I would like to give you a overview about the necessary skills required as a fresher to get a descent job as a security analyst.
The job of a security analyst is having a huge scope so you need to know each loop and corner of it.
More or less the work revolves around systems and networks, or software's and hardware's.
You need to have good hand on working with laptops, computer systems and hardware's and software's.
All the queries which arise related to systems and their solutions you need to be aware and should have deep knowledge on the same. All the system related issues like server access, server is down, system back ups for data recovery is a critical part. Suppose due to some reasons a system stopped working but the data is needed urgently then you are the only person who will be approached in that particular situation, than you should know how to get back up of a system and or extract from server.

Again security of all networks and systems is the responsibility of security analyst, how to keep track of everything and monitor on regular basis of all systems and networks. How to check any malware's and hacking if undergone.
Time to time doing scanning of systems to keep them free from virus attacks with the help of anti virus software's.
Hope after reading all the above explanations you got idea and knowledge about the necessary skills for a freshers to get descent job as a security analyst. Now you can analyse and decide what all are your weak areas and where you need to improve your skill sets. Then you can easily get a job for the same post in any company hiring freshers.
