What would be some material to study for a position of this kind?

Has anybody heard of this position or actually works as an analyst?

    It sounds like this postion is "log analysis" it depends on what events we are talking about, if we are talking Microsoft event log, then you might want to research what books exist in the way of securing Microsoft. I'd also recommend getting familiar with Microsofts security patch program, Microsofts baseline security analyzer, their built in firewall, and any other products that would be specific to this role.

    You really need to get more info on the day to day duties of this postion, most all products that are security related are going to have log files associated with them, switches, routers, IDS/IPS, firewalls, proxy's etc.

    It also wouldn't be a bad idea to check out some of wiresharks training videos so you could learn how to differntiate between normal network traffic and abnorma or malicious.
