Cyber security is an increasingly important field of expertise as organisations defend themselves against web-based or electronic attacks. It makes the role of a Security Consultant critical to organisations, particularly as IT security attacks become more common – and more sophisticated.
Security Consultants are frequently brought into an organisation to advise or remediate security gaps, deficiencies, or areas of improvement within a business.
Security Consultants need to have a thorough understanding of technology, security concepts, and the means to defend against threats/risks to an organisation (both internal and external) then advise a business accordingly.
Security Consultants work closely with IT engineers as well as other technical and non-technical staff.
