The Cybersecurity Director is a senior level role, responsible for overseeing an organization’s overall cybersecurity. The role supervises aspects of IT security including design, development, implementation, incident response, budgets, and adherence to various regulations. The Cybersecurity Director contributes to overall cybersecurity strategy by identifying growth opportunities based on the latest threats, as well as managing security personnel and reporting on the company’s cybersecurity posture.
Although Director positions often involve more management than technical work, Cybersecurity Directors need to have mastered some cybersecurity tools. These professionals need experience in computer programming languages such as Java or C and operating systems such as Windows and UNIX. They also must be able to conduct risk assessments, compliance audits, and have an understanding of the tools used for threat modelling and intrusion detection.
