Cyber security is a diverse sector and there are many different roles and paths available for newcomers to the industry.

The most popular role-types our learners secure are;

  • Cyber Security Consultancy
    A role where you normally work for a larger organisation and help customers on a variety of different cyber security projects.

  • Information Assurance & Governance
    A role where you might be tasked to ensure compliance within agreed cyber security policies, manage and assess digital risk, support internal audits, and more.

  • Security Operations Centre Analyst (SOC Analyst)
    A role where you actively monitor networks and systems to identify unauthorised actions by users or potential intrusion by an attacker.

  • Cyber Security Generalist

    A varied role which combines multiple specialisms into one. From threat intelligence and SOC analysis, through to ensuring compliance with cyber security policy and delivering security awareness training.

The CAPSLOCK careers and coaching team will help you identify which cyber security role you want and work with you to make that become a reality.
