DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Cybersecurity engineers approach network and information technology infrastructure protection uniquely. Not only must they know how to protect a network from unauthorized access, but they must also know how whatever security protocols they implement can be circumvented. Cybersecurity engineers must wear both white and black hats for their organization.
This dual role requires an individual with experience and knowledge that exists outside what is normally considered the realm of standard business behavior. Candidates with experience breaking into systems may have insights that other candidates cannot match — deciding how valuable such experience is for your organization will require due diligence and effort.
