Security Management recruitment agency listing
An IT security manager is responsible for ensuring that a company’s computer data is stored safely. They work to prevent hackers from accessing information and to ensure that online communication between staff is kept private. They advise the company on the most appropriate security measures to take, considering the particular needs of their business and the industry in which they work.
Many large companies employ an IT security manager to work in house, so there are opportunities for computer security experts to work in a wide variety of businesses. Alternatively, security managers may be employed by a company that specialises in supplying expertise in this area on a consultancy basis. Some examples of well-known IT security specialists in the UK include ECSC, Vega and PA Consulting. Companies that work at a high professional standard belong to the Institute of Information Security Professionals.
Suitable candidates for employment in IT security management should have relevant qualifications, such as a degree or diploma in the subject. Most positions are filled by recruitment agencies, who assist companies in finding staff with the appropriate experience. As every major company requires advice in this area, there are IT security manager jobs available all around the UK. Positions are usually permanent and salaries are increasing each year as demand for technology expertise grows.
