IT Security jobs determine admins who will be able to access certain information, and then they plan and implement programs to prevent security threats. Using their broad experience and expertise in IT, they create programs for organisations to help against threats and cybercrime, inclusive of malware, hacking, viruses and phishing.
They use their skills in analysis, forensics and reverse engineering to investigate, monitor and diagnose any threats to the system. It is, therefore, their responsibility to suggest the best solution, including hardware and software programs that will eliminate the threat in question. Professionals within the industry will be able to design firewalls to protect the network and data, monitor data file use and then regulate the admins who can access to these files.
It is therefore important that anyone within IT Security is able to stay up-to-date on the latest news within the industry and any potential risks that could affect their organisation or clients. Members within IT Security may even have to train users, promote security awareness, create policies and procedures, in addition to management reports, in relation to their status within the team.
