    Anything on your resume is fair game. I'd just focus to what's on there. And anything you don't know, say you don't know. When you answer questions you don't know as if you do there's no recovery... I liken IT interviews to street fights, you're defending yourself. Always make sure to counter with something you do know if you're stumped or note your experience on subject matter related to the question.

    Sounds like a NOC position, so I wouldn't expect it to be too technical. Probably a broad range of questions, but nothing too deep.
