While the specific duties of your Security Specialist will depend on the needs of your company, typically they will be involved in the day to day management of your network’s security hardware and software. If required in the role of a manager, they will be responsible for training and supervising your IT security staff, as well as providing digital security training to your other employees.

As cyber security specialists, their role demands that they remain at the forefront of information regarding current and potential online threats and the most recent and cutting edge protocols for addressing them. Some of these risks include DOS attacks (Denial Of Service), Hacking (unauthorised access to networks), Pharming (redirections to fake websites), Phishing, Viruses, Spyware, Worms and Trojans. 

The Information Security Manager or IT Security Specialist will also assess and minimise network risks (identifying and securing any weak points) and upgrade and test existing security systems, even design new systems if required. They will also test your security systems by simulating breaches and develop a disaster and recovery plan if a security breach does occur.

Tasks performed by cyber security specialists may include:

  • Monitoring the company’s digital security footprint.
  • Checking internal and external security policy compliance.
  • Developing, implementing and testing new security technology.
  • Maintaining security infrastructure.
  • Auditing and updating security policies.
  • Overseeing or conducting security violation investigations.
  • Assessing security measures (firewalls, passwords, anti-virus software).
  • Developing business continuity, data backups and disaster recovery systems.
