Security Architect

Security Architect

Security architects take responsibility for technical design of security systems and procedures within organisation.

The role will vary in responsibility depending on the size of the employer organisation but will usually include leading strategy and decision making around the technical design of the security as well as strategy and methodology used. Security architects need to understand the wider direction of technology being used to make informed decisions on the requirements and strategy moving forward.

Key skills

Due to the nature of their role, they need the ability to communicate technical concepts and requirements to leadership teams. They also use their ability to engage stakeholders to identify and understand business problems and turn these into complex but easily explained security strategy.

The key technical knowledge needed for a role as a security architect will depend on the type of organisation but will usually involve a high level of technical skill and the ability to understand and communicate complex cyber security concepts and technology.
