What is a
system administrator
cybersecurity specialist?

With the increasing use of IT tools and the exponential growth of communication networks, information systems are equally exposed to security risks.

 The security administrator takes part in Risk Management and in the compliance of Information Systems.

His/her scope of activity falls within all or part of his/her field of expertise.
As he/she is in a critical position, the security manager may be required to work outside of his/her working hours.
This is particularly the case during updates which must take place when the infrastructure is least used (evenings and weekends) as well as in the event of a weakening of the infrastructure (attempted attacks, technical failure, etc.)
