Cybersecurity Jobs- The cybersecurity of a company is heavily reliant upon the skills and knowledge of the people who install, manage, and operate its security products. This means that recruiting and nurturing the best security team possible should be a CISO’s top priority.
Cynet’s Ultimate Cybersecurity Job Posting Templates (download here) provide a list of the main responsibilities and skills for typical security positions, built upon research and providing IT and security managers with pre-set template job descriptions so that there is no need to create them from scratch.
Because of the fact that there are many different cybersecurity job titles, with much overlap between job descriptions and responsibilities, the creation of the inclusion criteria for these positions required significant review and consideration.
Six positions are included in the following job templates, including all integral aspects of the responsibility cycle in product deployment, integration, and operation, plus the management of security personnel.
The positions covered in the templates are:
- Security Architect — This position oversees the design, building, testing, and implementation of security systems in the organization’s environment, both for business and customer data. They must have in-depth knowledge of IT systems and be current on the newest developments in security standards and authentication protocols, plus solutions meeting best practice requirements.
- Security Analyst Tier 1 — Tasked with overseeing stage one triage and definition of security events, they provide 24/7/365 support for the SOC. They must follow standard procedures for detection, definition, classification, and reporting of incidents, under the management of the SOC manager and in coordination with Tier 2 SOC Analysts.
