The Most In-Demand Security Jobs and How to Get Them

Anywhere high-tech is used creates a demand for security technology professionals. “We need to make sure every door has a lock, so to speak,” said PK Agarwal, regional dean and CEO of Northeastern University-Silicon Valley and former CTO for California under Governor Schwarzenegger.

Security professionals are in demand right now. Entry-level security jobs, according to Corey Wilburn, security practice manager at DataEndure, fall into either an engineer or analyst role.

“An engineer role would be primarily accountable for the deployment, integration and maintenance of technology-based security controls,” Wilburn explained. “An analyst, on an incident response or security operations team, would handle the review of data feeds generated by technology-based security controls to track down potential malicious activity within an organization.”

Every career path needs a starting point, but these security jobs could take you down the road to a C-level position someday.
