In this case, it is the role of the cyber security officer in an international corporation. The duties and responsibilities of a cyber security officer vary depending on the place of employment. However, in this case, we are assuming the cyber security officer has the perfect position because it is one all cyber security officers should strive to attain in order to “do it right the first time.”
