There is a surprising number of title variations among people who work in the field that I call “information security.” I browsed through various job-search sites to get a feel for the more frequently-seen titles and created a random information security job title generator. Just for fun.
The titles I encountered were generally a permutation of the following terms:
This word set can produce over 12,000 titles such as:
- Senior Security Systems Architect
- Principal Application Security Operations Engineer
- Chief Information Security Manager
- Enterprise Risk Consultant
- Information Security Program Officer
Not all word combinations make sense, but you get the idea. I used a subset of these words to create the random information security job title generator. It can produce a couple of thousand titles, displaying 8 of them at a time.
Update: See my follow-up post that explores which infosec titles are actually being used.
