      The question is way too broad

      A security officer may be technical- hardening systems to protect against penetration, governance- insuring retention standards, risk assessment, etc, or compliance- insuring that policy and procedure is in keeping with various laws governing industry.

      My question to you would be “What area specifically are you working in”. Only then could I begin to give you a comprehensive view to general duties.

      Depends on the role:

      Compliance Officer
      data security analyst
      Security Officer – hardware
      Security Officer – other

      there are more flavours of security officer than I care to think about. in some cases we have a finite set of duties, whereas in other cases, you have many many duties that overlap into many different areas.

      You need to know the types of TCP/IP traffic, the ports they use, which types are allowed in your network, which types are allowed to leave your network (users viewing public web pages on port 80, for example) and which are allowed into your network (customers placing orders on port ?you decide? )

      Google the word ‘firewall’ as well.
