Security Engineer Roles

Security Engineer roles are not one-size-fits-all roles.

Security engineering covers a wide array of areas AND tends to be different based on each company's needs -- just like many other security roles.


Security Engineers can include, but are not limited to:


🛑 Network Security Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining network security


🛑 Application Security Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining application security


🛑 Cloud Security Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining cloud security


🛑 Information Security Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining information security


🛑 Identity and Access Management (IAM) Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining and access management


🛑 Cryptography Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining cryptographic systems


🛑 Security Operations Center (SOC) Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining in security operations


🛑 Vulnerability Management or Assessment Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining vulnerability management or assessment


🛑 Incident Response Engineers: designing, implementing and/or maintaining incident response


Obviously, these descriptions are super vague, and you'll have to do your own research, but the point is that each of these can fall under the general "Security Engineer" title, and they each have different job responsibilities.


Having a clear understanding of this in your job outlook and search will help direct you in a role that's best suited for you.
