Security Engineer Jobs in Washington D.C.

Find Security Engineer Jobs in the Washington, D.C. Area

Security Engineers are an important part of a company’s tech team, tasked with building and managing security networks across its web systems. They will outline, implement and maintain the security policies for a company and engineer new solutions for existing production security issues. It's also key for Security Engineers to analyze the effectiveness of current security measures for risk and vulnerability. They report issues on their findings and recommend changes the company should take on its future systems. Security Engineers also create automation scripts that are capable of tracking and handling security occurrences. It's a collaborative role, as Security Engineers must work with other team members to formulate authentication, authorization and encryption responses in web systems and present security analyses on new technologies that the company incorporates. Professionals in this field often have a degree in computer programming with an engineering focus. They're in-demand in many fields, particularly as new cyber threats emerge that businesses must constantly battle.
