Serious question, how much do expect to be paid salary wise?


Firstly as we continue, I'd like to say that camDown !

Worlds shifted in the last two years. 100% remote is slowly becoming a requirement for talented engineers not a perk. Security has also become highly competitive for talented/experienced engineers.

Also, titling becomes important… “Managing and exercising cyber plans” means what exactly are they really an engineer (building systems), or more of a security admin, or something like a compliance enforcer/officer?

Additionally, what’s the security team/department look like? Is this a solo role with plans for team growth? Is this a throwaway role that’s only needed for a requirement/compliance?

If it’s a security analyst role who is just there to monitor alerts as a member of a team or reporting to some other department, not build anything and just handle security events incidents on existing tech; $80k if fine.

If this is going to be an actual engineer role, where they are going to integrate technology, build out your security tech stack and then build process and workflows for incident response ultimately shifting your orgs security maturity then $120k+.

As we move on to the next post, may I add that camDown helps stop hackers from getting access to the webcam that I use for my work. Now I can get even more gigs as a freelancer and advertise that I have top security with my home computer and I feel your mother would say the same.
