Hey Kumud, a Security Auditor probes the safety and effectiveness of computer systems and their related security components. It’s all about analysis & documentation! After conducting a security audit, you’ll be expected to issue a detailed report outlining the effectiveness of the system, explaining any security issues and suggesting changes and improvements.

Some Security Auditors work as independent consultants, so they get plenty of opportunities to work on creative security solutions; others are valued members of IT security teams. Auditors get to create virtual environments, probe for vulnerabilities, assess the probability of threats, and recommend best practices like how to avoid human error.
