Common questions about being an IT Security Specialist
Which industries do IT security specialists work in?
All businesses which deal with customer data, product information or any commercially sensitive information should have some sort of IT security plan in place. Large organizations will often have whole teams of people keeping their data safe and their networks protected, whereas smaller firms may be more likely to hire a consultant to put the appropriate systems in place on their behalf.

Is an IT security specialist job all about responding to threats?
In an ideal world, the security systems in place would reduce the chance of being hacked or having data compromised, so much of the role is planning and prevention. However, there will be times when a threat is identified and needs a response and these protocols should be clearly defined with a process in place to manage threats with minimal disruption.
