The Coolest IT Security Jobs

Directly from GCN the first 10 positions on “Coolest Security Job”, I like them:


1. Information security crime investigator/forensics expert
2. System, network and/or Web penetration tester
3. Forensics analyst
4 (tie). Incident response, incident handler
4 (tie). Security architect
6. Vulnerability researcher
7 (tie). Network security engineer
10 (tie). CISO/ISO or director of sec
10 (tie). Application penetration tester


Why it’s cool: “You’re an ‘ethical hacker’. “It takes equal parts technical ability and creativity,” “Combines applying different thought processes to system analysis with exploration tools, and a sort of dangerous level of knowledge.”
