Job Description for Security Architect, IT

An information technology (IT) security architect is responsible for the network and computer security for their company. At the early stages of the security life cycle, the security architect acts as a project leader to plan, research, and design elements of security. The security architect starts by creating a general design, planning intended features and functionality. Then, the security architect delegates tasks to members of an assigned programming team to develop the modules necessary for the final security structure. After the pieces have been created, the security architect integrates the security modules and begins testing the final security structure to ensure it behaves as intended. The IT security architect then develops the company policies and procedures for how their company's employees will use the security systems. After researching possible authentication protocols, the security architect selects a scheme to use and implements the selected protocols.
