SOC analyst interview questions shared by candidates
The one question I was startled by was whether or not I was looking to a career or just a foot in the door. Fair question.
Being off keyboard for some time now and missing the Information Security realm (Cyber) I was happy to say that I am looking for a career for the next 10 years. I tried a CSR position last year and it just wasn't a fit (changing passwords and reinstalling email software.) Getting back into using Splunk and other OTS and tools is very exciting to me.
The screenings: port numbers, TCP handshake, IDS/IPS difference, basic Linux commands Actual interview: A bit overlap + SQL/XSS processes, phishing example. They also handed me handouts of Wireshark and IDS outputs and asked me to explain what was going on. Most of them were breaches, so be familiar.
