Along with the tasks in the previous answers, they are also responsible to decode cryptic messages and encode messages. It is not necessary that cryptologists work only for IT company. The main use of cryptologists is in the military.

I read about a UK Cryptologist, Dr, Layla Benmusa.  She  stated it's  about, using mathematics, to secure data and solve cyber security problems.

The basics, is securing, data , from unauthorized access or use.  For example, you could work within a Bank, securing the web traffic , or work within a cyber security firm, protecting client data.
