    Qualities are the same as any 'engineer'. The skills, required would include deep knowledge of various operating systems, various networks, programming & scripting languages etc. Basically, a cyber security expert is incredibly good at understanding computing systems in depth.

    Making a career in cyber security would be interesting and a lot of people are opting for it these days. I believe you should begin by taking a course on cyber security from a reputed institute. Do enquire about CISCO-NIIT cyber security program. I don't have first hand reviews of it; but it does look promising for the start.

    Given your background in Electronics & Communication; I believe starting with networking is also a good option. If you are working with any company, it'd help if you can check if there are any learning opportunities in your company.
