Security Engineer Jobs in Chicago

Find Security Engineer Jobs in Chicago

Security Engineers serve as the front line of defense against cyber threats. They design, develop or install IT security solutions that help reduce a company’s vulnerability to hacks, intrusions or attacks. Part of their duties may include developing automation scripts, installing and configuring firewalls, evaluating new technology for security flaws and performing software/firmware upgrades. Security Engineers often work in full-time positions alongside system analysts and network administrators. With the increased reliance on data-storage and cloud-computing, the demand for network security has been on a rise. Projections by BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) estimate a 28 percent job growth for Information security analyst, including security engineers for decades to come.
