IT security jobs are in demand, and the market is currently seeking candidates to fill this sector.

With our specialised services, you can find jobs that have the potential for great IT security careers.

Find Out What Having a Job in IT Security Means For Your Career

IT Security, also known as computer security or cyber security, applies to computers, computer networks, and the data stored and transferred using these systems. It involves all the processes and mechanisms by which digital equipment, information, and services are protected from unauthorized access, change, or destruction.

An IT security specialist applies security measures to ensure that data remains confidential and available, whether it’s in transit or at rest.

Think You’re Qualified to Work in IT Security?

If you want to become a cyber-security specialist, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree in either computer programming, computer science, information technology, or computer engineering. Courses in English, statistics, and mathematics will also help add value to your application.

Having a certification credential will increase the number of jobs available to you, and a large number of employers require that you possess one. Courses like CISA (Certified Information System Auditor), CISM (Certified Information Security Management), and CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professionals) are tailored to budding IT security specialists.

Cisco and Microsoft even have their own certified course in this field – the CCSP (Cisco Certified Security Professional) and MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer).

The Real Reason You’ll Be Hired: Skills

If you’re looking for IT security jobs, you’ll have to possess knowledge of all the regulatory environments that your employer uses, whether it’s PCI, DSS, or HIPAA. Another important skill to have is risk management, and companies have begun to search for candidates with GIAC Security Essentials Certification, which focuses on aspects like risk assessment, security policy, password management, IDS, and firewalls.

Many firms also require you to have a basic understanding of how businesses work. This way, they know that employees with strong technical backgrounds can actually translate the technology into business needs.

What’s The Minimum Experience Needed?

Most companies require a bachelor’s degree in a computer-related field, but a few employers may be willing to compromise on that front if you possess a decent amount of experience. For a higher post, like an IT security administrator, the required experience is generally anywhere between 2 and 6 years.

Firms in the US prefer candidates who have a mix of both the proper certification and extensive experience.

What Do Jobs In IT Security Involve?

An IT security engineer will be required to monitor computer networks for security threats, or unauthorized users, and report on the measures taken to deal with these threats. They develop response procedures to risks, and may also be involved in testing software deployment tools, intrusion detection systems, and firewalls. Some workers are required to research, evaluate, recommend, and implement other security measures as well.

IT security administrators teach those under them about computer security, check for security violations, and install protection software. They are also expected to take action against cyber-attacks and provide evidence to prosecute the individual who caused the breach.

Where This Job Will Take You?

IT security is an industry that’s currently witnessing the highest growth in government and government contractor sectors. The US Bureau of Labour Statistics reports that jobs requiring the expertise of IT security analysts will see an increase in demand by 37%, creating a vacancy of 27,400 jobs between 2012 and 2022. The salary of IT security specialists according to Indeed.com is currently $83,000, with the figures going over $107,000 if you’re a senior network security engineer.
