Top 10 Highest-Paying IT Security Roles

In an attempt to stay secure, companies are willing to break the piggy bank for skilled professionals, so it’s no surprise salaries in this field are hitting the roof. Find out what are some of the highest-paying IT Security roles in the US.
Chief Information Security Officer | $180,000 – $300,000

C-suite executives are usually well-paid, and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are no exception. They are extremely valuable to their organizations because they offer the best of both worlds: they are business savvy and own a wide range of technical skills.

Applications Security Engineer | $123,000 – $144,000

With businesses relying on all kinds of web and mobile apps, Applications Security Engineers earn big. While their salary sure looks appealing, this role requires a strong set of skills. They are in charge of an entire organization’s application security, which makes them responsible if any attack happen.

Information Security Analyst | $77,000 – $143,000

Information Security Analysts plan and carry out security measures to protect an organization’s computer networks and systems. However, their responsibilities are continually expanding as the number of cyber attacks increases every year.

Reverse Engineer | $72,000 – $139,000

By taking a piece of malware apart and studying it, Reverse Engineers can help develop new tools to combat the techniques used by malware developers, rather than reactively developing defenses for individual malware programs. Reverse engineering is widely used in computer hardware and software to enhance product features or fix certain bugs.

Data Security Analyst | $65,000 – $131,000

Data security analysts work to protect the troves of sensitive data that companies store such as credit card details, billing information, customer data, and more. There are highly valuable to a company because they are dealing directly with an organization’s most sensitive assets.

IT Security Consultant | $52,000 – $120,000

It is crucial for security consultants to have an extensive range of skills. Indeed, you never know what your client will ask next. From simple penetration tests to assistance after a breach, consultants need to know everything.
One other important skill for consultants to have is communication. You need to be able to explain to execs, without jargon, what happened and/or how to fix the issue.

Penetration Tester | $47,000 – $109,000

Penetration testers, also known as pentesters, are a very important part of a security team. These highly-skilled (ethical) hackers are responsible for finding, exploiting, and providing remediation plans for all vulnerabilities a company may have. In 2018, there is no secure organization without the help of penetration testers.

Systems Administrator | $53,000 – $106,000

According to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, System Administrators (SysAdmins) are responsible for setting up and maintaining an entire system or specific components of a system. For example, establishing and managing user accounts, overseeing or conducting backup and recovery tasks, implementing operational and technical security controls, etc.

IT Security Specialist | $46,000 – $102,000

Computer security is of utmost importance to organizations seeking to protect their assets on the world wide web. IT Security Specialists, also called Computer Security Specialists, are responsible for protecting those assets on a day-to-day basis.

While the cybersecurity landscape evolves, an increasing number of new roles and threats are born too. This growth gives way to a deeper and deeper skill gap question that companies answer by searching for all-around industry experts – at all cost.
