In this show, Shon will go over the key aspects of the cybersecurity jobs responsibilities, skills, and the duties associated. This is part 5 of 5 in the ongoing series designed to help HR/Hiring managers as well as those looking for cybersecurity jobs.

These videos will go over what the hiring professionals should be looking for and what potential candidates should strive to achieve to meet the growing cybersecurity job demand.

This part of the video series will go through what responsibilities are normally associated with cybersecurity jobs (Management, Accountability, Regulatory Requirements). We will touch on the resume and what are some key things to consider around skills and duties when posting a job and applying for a role.


welcome to the reduce cyber risk podcast where we give you the tools you need to meet your regulatory requirements while helping keep the evil hacker hoarded Bay hi my name is Sean Gerber and I'm your host for this action-packed informative podcast join me each week cuz I provide the information you need to best protect your business and reduce your company cyber risk OK Google reduce cyber risk cyber-security more than a job description responsibilities as a security person or something for you to consider Social Security leader as a security officer understand leadership and strategy you need to be the person that would be the leader of it and information security dries information security strategy and implementation racial compliance to regulatory standards and manage the team that may be geographically dispersed some key responsibilities for a security officer if you're looking for one of those so again if you seeing that that's what you want from resume standpoint if you're an HR person if an individual tell me what if they're seeing these kind of big leadership things that are talking like that that's probably what they're looking for is a security leader in that level an architect's all these are some of the key things an architect would have got on these the videos that we have out there and if you listen to this on a podcast you'll be able to go back to either YouTube or till you reduce cyber risk I'll have these videos out there available for you and you can check out the links and it talk about where they're at from either one's roberthalf I got other ones from SC magazine and so forth so there's lots of different opportunities out there for you to look at but from the architect standpoint strategically how do you design and Implement security systems within organizations it network security architect is expected to have thorough understanding of complex it systems and stay up-to-date with the latest security stay in the system and authentication protocols as well as the best practice security products that came from Robert Half and that's what they expect out of an architect you're going to see different ones like that and if you're an HR person you to tailor it specifically to what you're looking within your organization from an IT point of view right because you'll get input from it from leadership whoever but you also know it doesn't hurt to go look online like in the case of Robert Half and and what they may have in place or recommend you go out and search those to find out what works best for you and your organization but that's what an architect is this is more of a technical strategy copies but more technical than strategy they plan and Implement security measures to protect computer systems networks and data information security analyst are expected to stay up-to-date on the latest intelligence including hackers methodologies in order to anticipate new security breaches okay just came from New England College also comes from CSO online opportunities out there to look for these again Protec Woodbridge of the technical with the leadership right and then you got this is so your security officer who basically is more leadership but also can get down at the architectural pieces of this and they can't get in the technical peace as well but again it's kind of more or less that's the hierarchy of how it kind of works no perfect be perfect is not going to be a one-size-fits-all but that's kind of how it works out this is as far as key duties we talked about this little bit before but directed approve designs security systems disaster recovery and business continuity plans are in place and tested in strategic review security policies controls and cyber incident response planning approve identity and access regulations periodic security infosec Institute and that's their key duties that they recommend for security officer you got to Taylor to how works best for you but that's strategic kind of thought process okay show me cyber security job descriptions for key duties for an architect this is where technically we talked about from a technical procedure aspects in this is where the technical procedures strategic meet so an example would have is answering technical procedural questions teaching improve processes mentoring team members secure requirements local areas vpns pki technical kind of in that squishy space right that's from hiring at monster.com they got lots of opportunities out there for people who are looking for that as well so again that's the architect is worth Technical and procedural and strategic come together they call us into one big ball of something list all right kidneys of an analyst they create test an employment Network Disaster Recovery plan so they can test it they treat they implemented and they do it right so that's the whole point and let's go do before we risk assessments the install firewalls did encryption security enhancements and purchases training staff on network information security procedures again they go do their more the doors Architects more of the Thinker doer and his sister was more of the Thinker kind of strategic glad hand grip and grin kind of person options are that's it from the New England College online.com and again these are linked to all be in the show notes are in the videos as well okay for a cyber school job description skills and competency the system we have communication and presentation skills policy development Administration skills supervisory skills into the management knowledge of regulations and so far this is off of Government information security.com they've got different areas out there to talk about the skills and competencies you can expect from your security officer architect network security network Hardware configurations strategy Network standard supervision information security policies again those are kind of in the middle that you're hiring at monster.com you can pick out some of those skills and competencies that they may have as well that your cissp certified information security manager cisaa which is your certified information security auditor and you're certified in Risk Information Systems control I've heard that one before I pulled out I know better than that it is a really good one serious cuz really good a certified ethical hacker and your CompTIA Security Plus so-so CSO online had this article and they talked about a lot of those go check it out it's got some really good stuff on that I hope you enjoyed this again is cybersecurity more than a job description and the whole bottom line of this is to provide you the skills that you need if your individual what do you have to do to be a security person if your HR what do you looking for from a security point of you have seen it myself there's been lots of opportunities were people have been looking for the right security person but they don't know what they're looking for and if your person getting started you don't know how to build your resume set up so that you can look good for the HR person and the HR person can actually know what the heck you're talking about again we'll have some more stuff on the future around this as well but it's just kind of beginning primer around cybersecurity and what you should be considering from an
