Any brief glimpse at one of the online job sites such as Indeed or Monster will not only return a huge number of hits for cyber security, but also a wide range of different job titles and job descriptions.
This can lead to a very difficult approach as to what type of job the company are actually advertising, and what they really want from a potential employee.
What does come through after this analysis, is that in many ways a lot of job titles, although different in name, are actually referring to the same type of work that needs doing.
Although this can seem a bit confusing at first, understanding it does give any potential applicant a real advantage, both in terms of knowing what they are looking for, and being able to present their skills and experience in a really focused way.
Some cyber security jobs require very specific experience and technical skills. Some require a specific academic qualifications. Some require a mix of both and some are more vocational in nature
What is equally true, is that as the world becomes more digital through the growth of different devices and products, cyber criminals will develop new ways of trying to gain access to these things.
The world of cyber security is growing and changing all the time, and the nature of jobs in this industry will follow that.
