Title: SOC Analyst Tier 1 Interview Questions

SOC Analyst Tier 1 Interview Questions
Security Operations Center (SOC) Analysts play a
crucial role in identifying, analyzing,
responding, and mitigating cyber attacks in an
organization. The Tier 1 SOC Analysts are
triaged, which means the first responders who
identify, manage, and configure the security
tools to analyze and define the nature of the
attack. This article provides the interview
questions for SOC Analysts L1 and helps to take a
quick revision before cracking an interview.
  • What is a threat?
  • A Threat is defined as a malicious activity
    intended to achieve unauthorized access to the
    system, disrupt the organization's assets, steal
    data, and damage the network operation.
  • The threats are categorized into the following
  • Adversarial Threat
  • Accidental Threat
  • Environmental Threat
  • Structured Threat
  • What is vulnerability?
  • Vulnerability is a weakness or security flaw in a
    system or network that allows attackers to
    exploit the system and can lead to unauthorized
    access, malware injection, DDoS attacks, or data
    compromise. It creates a possible way to violate
    the system's security policy.
  • Explain the difference between event and
  • An event is an occurrence in time that is
    analyzed, verified, and documented. An incident
    is a series of events that negatively affect
    organizational assets.
  • How is Incident management different from Problem
  • Incident Management is defined as minimizing the
    negative impact of incidents by restoring
    security operations. In contrast, problem
    management is defined as the cause of one or more
    incidents that further deals with identifying the
    root cause of an incident.
  • Define a Brute force attack and a Dictionary
  • In a Brute force attack, several possible key
    permutations or trial and error methods are used
    to get the login info, access to a web page, or
    encryption keys. Whereas, in a Dictionary attack,
    words are used to break the password-protected
    network, system, or IT resource.
  • What are the various types of Brute Force
  • The following are the various types of Brute
    Force Attacks
  • Credential Stuffing
  • Dictionary Attack
  • Simple Brute Force Attack
  • Hybrid Brute Force Attack
  • Reverse Brute Force Attack
  • Rainbow Table Attack
  • What is the difference between DOS DDOS?
  • DOS is a Denial of Service attack in which the
    attackers send an enormous amount of traffic to
    make the server or website services unavailable.
    In contrast, the DDoS attack is a Distributed
    denial-of-service that uses multiple systems to
    inject massive traffic into the target system.
    Both DoS and DDoS attacks aim to interrupt the
    services provided by the websites.
  • Define Firewall, and what are the different types
    of firewalls?
  • A Firewall is a security solution used to protect
    the network from malicious activities. It is
    connected with the systems or devices through a
    network to monitor the network traffic.
  • Different types of firewalls are as follows
  • Packet-filtering firewall
  • Cloud firewall
  • Application layer firewall
  • Stateful Inspection firewall
  • Hardware firewall
  • Software firewall
  • What is WAF?
  • A Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects the web
    application from cyberattacks such as cookie
    poisoning, Cross-site scripting, SQL injection,
