What does a Smart Home Professional do?

Security architects design security structures and systems to protect and defend against malware and other intrusions to a computer system. Once structures and systems are in place, security architects run an audit of the entire system to test it for any weaknesses or vulnerabilities. They meet with upper management to understand the company's technology and information systems and new and pressing needs. They plan, research, and design security architecture for the company and perform vulnerability testing and security assessments of the new software and systems. They will sometimes hire an ethical hacker to consult on system weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Security architects provide technical supervision to security teams and oversee company security awareness programs. They also respond immediately to service-related incidents and develop requirements for a company’s local, wide, and virtual private networks and requirements for routers, firewalls, and related network devices. They review and approve the installation of firewalls, VPNs, routers, and servers and update security systems as needed. Security architects need a bachelor's degree in computer science and experience in software engineering.
