Cyber Security Engineer

Cyber Security Engineers, also called Information Security Analysts, help to safeguard organisation's computer networks and systems. They plan and carry out security measures to monitor and protect sensitive data and systems from infiltration and cyber-attacks.

Job Description of Cybersecurity Engineers
It’s difficult to completely cover the full scope of duties expected of cyber security engineers given the fact that the role is defined so differently from one organization to the next.

One job description outlined duties that include:

Managing and leading security incident response efforts
Configuration of Windows and Linux host-based security as well as network and cloud-based security systems
Assisting with the installation and configuration of network security architectures, including firewalls, Demilitarized Zones (DMZ), router ACLs (Access Control Lists), and web content filters
Monitoring and responding to Intrusion Detection System (IDS) cues and anti-virus alerts
A day in the life of a cybersecurity engineer can differ widely depending on the organization and the engineer’s portfolio of expertise. One thing that all IA/security engineers will find, however, is that their tasks are typically hands-on: working directly with machines, users, and code to secure against attack.

Because of that direct action role, cyber security engineers are expected to stay abreast of current developments in the field. This includes:

Maintaining current knowledge of technology capabilities and trends
Monitoring types and techniques of hacking attacks in the wild
Accumulating operational intelligence and maintaining threat profiles of likely attackers

At the same time, another position, with the same title, dealt exclusively with monitoring a FireEye HX Endpoint Security Tool, a very specific network monitoring and threat intelligence tool.
