I can say these below are some key skills,

  1.  Build a company’s overall security structure across multiple platforms, so they can provide required access to different level of employees.
  2.  Build solutions that address these multiple points of risk entry from different sources such as mobile, laptop, tab, etc.
  3. Need good technical knowledge about Computer Networks, architecture, and many algorithms and languages to provide solutions.
