Skills in demand: February 2016


Skills in demand

Information security architects are not only subject matter experts with strong knowledge of many facets of information security programs, they also are a highly visible role within leadership and will often report directly into the CISO or CIO.   

What it takes

Security architects often have in-depth knowledge of implementation and configuration of security tools and best practices. The ability to use hands-on technical knowledge and translate that information into long-term security strategy is critical.


Base compensation can range from $130K to $190K, often with additional incentives.
