Even after working years in the Security field, everyone feels very uncomfortable while going for the interview and the reason for the same is scattered knowledge collected over the years and the unknown skill set developed over these years and the missing introspection of his or her abilities in the security domain.

Understand the Concept of Security Interview

All these can be taken care of if anyone prepares for the interview in a structured way. In this article, we will discuss the best way to prepare for any Cybersecurity Interview.

While preparing for an interview, anyone needs to understand the Employers expectations and requirements and just the Job description is not enough for the same.

For the preparation of any Interview we need to understand below 10 items in details:

  1. Job Description
  2. Knowledge requirements for the position
  3. Skills requirements for the position
  4. Abilities requirements for the position
  5. Associated Tasks for that position
  6. Certifications for that position
  7. Standards & guidelines
  8. Laws & Regulations
  9. The latest development in the field
  10. Security Tools & Techniques


If anyone prepares for the security position interview covering all these 10 points, then it will be very easy for him or her to understand the Job requirements, and so he or she can easily crack any security position interview for entry-level, intermediate level, or expert level.

 In our future blogs, we will discuss all these items one by one in detail.
