Data Security Specialist

Data Security Specialist

Data security specialists help plan, coordinate and implement an organisation’s information security.

As a data security specialist, you might be responsible for:

  • Educating users about computer security;
  • Installing security software and monitoring networks for security breaches;
  • Implementing security policies;
  • Responding to cyber attacks, and perhaps, gathering data and evidence to be used in prosecuting cyber crime.

Your work would protect organisations from cyber attacks, safeguarding the online information of the organisations and their clients, partners and employees.
