for today’s session, we will be discussing
about cyber security engineer. So who is the cyber
security engineer A cyber security engineer
is a professional who protects computer and networking systems from potential occurs and
cyber attacks security engineer provides a specialized
engineering approach to cybersecurity specifically
regarding the design of security systems to avoid and fight against issues
like data breaches or major data hacks, but what is exactly a cyber
security engineer do well? It’s no surprise that the faulty software
often leaves networks vulnerable to malware
spyware adware fishing and different kind of attacks a security engineer
analyzes computer networks and just they’re running
securely and tries to foresee possible security issues that may arise in future in short a security engineer
focuses on designing computer systems equipped
to deal with disruptions, like natural disasters
or malicious. Tax so guys now,
you know and general what a cyber security
engineer does now, let’s look at roles and responsibilities
of a cyber security engineer. Like I said earlier
a cyber security Engineers primary mission is to protect
the computer systems and networks of an organization from threats and attacks
to consistently achieve. This Mission. There are many tasks and duties a cyber
security engineer must perform. Let’s take a look at few
of the most common functions. First of all developing a set
of security standards and practices that entire

of intrusions or any sort of Data Breach. So that immediate
action can be taken. Performing penetration testing and network scans
to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities developing
automation scripts to handle and track incidents suppose. If a data breach of some sort or some sort of Cyber attack happens a cyber security
engineer launches investigation against such attacks. The cyber security engineer is
also responsible for developing and implementing a plan of action for responding
to data breaches or any sort of cyber attacks. Apart from all this a cyber security engineer
also oversees maintenance of firewalls routers

enhancements and improvements. Finally a cyber security
engineer also train and educate Network users

some aspects of job that are handled
a performed daily. You will never know what a day in cyber security
Engineers life and tails until it happens. So it’s difficult to completely
cover the full scope of Duties expected of a cyber
security engineer given the fact that the role is
defined so differently from one organization
