Security Architect is a Senior level role and you can not directly get a job as a Security Architect. This is what you should do:

  • Get a Bachelor's Degree IT related fields (Computer Science, Information Science etc)
  • Get an entry-level job in Cyber-Security field (Security admin, Network admin, System admin etc)
  • Get promoted to a mid-level role
  • Get promoted as Security Architect
