Roles & Responsibilities:

Cyber Security graduates are computer specialists. They work for organizations to help structure, install and manage information security systems. They work to protect an organization's computer information and prevent the loss of data. They watch for security breaches and respond to them, if necessary.

The responsibilities of Cyber Security specialists vary depending on the nature of work of their employers. In a small home setting, network security specialists might be hired to install virus protection software and perform ritual cleanups.
