Keen to kickstart your cyber career but still need clarity about what kind of tasks are involved in cyber graduate jobs? The responsibilities of cyber roles can range from designing security infrastructure to performing digital forensics. The specific duties involved in a graduate cyber security role will depend on the employer, job type, and seniority level. For most grads entering the world of cyber security, entry level jobs will be the main focus of job applications, so let’s look at what some of the most popular entry level security jobs entail…
Junior Security Analyst – In this role, you will be responsible for analysing a business’ security systems, identifying vulnerabilities, correcting system flaws and scanning for any suspicious activity.
Graduate Penetration Tester – The job of a penetration tester entails ethical hacking, which is the process of attempting to hack into a computer system at the request of an individual or organisation in order to test the efficacy of their security systems.
Trainee Security Architect – As a trainee, your role will entail helping the senior security architect to plan, design and build cyberinfrastructure that meets the security policies and protocols of the individual or organisation you are working for.
Forensic Specialist – Digital forensics graduate jobs revolve around mitigating damage once a system breach has occurred. The job of the forensic team entails the recovery of data, reconstruction of damaged hardware, and investigation into what/who is responsible.
If you’re a technically skilled graduate with coding capabilities and the ability to work well under pressure, you should definitely consider applying to cyber security grad jobs.
