Job Description for Security Manager
The tasks of a security manager vary somewhat, depending on the type of work a manager is doing, and what position he or she occupies. In a seemingly large company, it is most likely that the security manager will oversee the physical security of people in a real-life environment, or he or she will oversee security through digital means. In a small company, a security manager is most likely to be found keeping security both digitally and in a physical, real-life environment, and will also perform a few other tasks depending on what the particular position calls for. When a security manager handles real-world security, this often involves protecting merchandise or property in the workplace and providing safety and security for coworkers, employees, and customers. The job of a security manager also involves creating certain security policies and procedures for everyone in the company to follow. Security managers make sure that the employees are practicing safe work habits. They may also instruct employees in various security methods used by the company. A security manager is also able to hire and train anyone he or she needs for security purposes. If a security manager is working in IT (information technology), he or she will most often be responsible for overseeing the security of (and preventing the privacy of) business information. This involves implementing security measures for computer systems, including firewalls, antivirus software, and other security measures that the security manager chooses to include. Security managers also monitor employee use on computer devices and run regular scans of systems at a business. An IT security manager is also responsible for an IT team, depending on how large the company is and how large the need for security is.
Security Manager Tasks
  • Plan and coordinate security activities to safeguard company assets, employees, guests or others.
  • Supervise security staff.
