Cyber Analyst and SOC Analyst are two different roles. As the Cyber Analyst works more along the risk and compliance side (more preventative) whereas the SOC Analyst works from more along the incident response side (more responsive). However, as it seems from the reality of the situation, many companies and even individuals use them interchangeably which I believe to be incorrect. Is there anyone here that can provide their views and experience of the situation?
