Tier 2—Security Assessor

Abstract

The process of evaluating an organization’s security profile will vary depending upon the size of an organization. For smaller organizations, a single individual is often capable of performing the evaluation, considering the systems, the business, and the regulatory drivers behind that business. For an individual who has a wide breadth of technical and business skills, security assessment could be a logical and rewarding career path.
