Cyber Security Technologists all require an understanding of security concepts and technology and how to mitigate risks arising from threats. The specific tasks undertaken vary depending on what needs to be achieved by the team at any particular time. Some tasks may be very technical, others may be more analytical, business or user focused.

All roles in this occupation work to achieve required cyber security outcomes in a legal and regulatory context in all parts of the economy.
