CyberSecurity Architect


by New Horizons Nigeria

A Cyber security architect is charged with designing security systems to thwart malware, hacker intrusions and Denial of Service attacks. Once the system is in place, you will need to test for any vulnerabilities and audit the entire system. To fully test your system, you may need to hire an outside consultant who can run a thorough penetration test to ensure that the system is secure from outside attacks.

On the managerial side, a security architect may work with other managers to implement employee protocols to maintain system integrity.
