The Cybersecurity Software Engineer is a key part of the entire software program lifecycle. They participate in the design, development, testing, and implementation of technologies to best meet the organization’s cybersecurity needs and business goals. Software Engineers are primarily responsible for the safety and efficacy of software, continually carrying out upgrades and testing. They may work as part of a software development team with other cybersecurity professionals or build each part of an application or program independently.
Cybersecurity Software Engineers often use coding and scripting tools, with a knowledge of languages such as Python, Java, and C++. They also may need to know SQL and other database languages, as well as ethical hacking and penetration testing tools. These professionals work with Windows, UNIX, and Linux operating systems alongside cloud computing technologies and incident management tools.
