Your Cyber Security job questions, answered

Are there lots of Cyber Security jobs available in Malaysia?  

Yes! The sudden, large scale shift to remote working not only sent the demand for Cyber Security skills skyrocketing, but as we continue to work remotely or in more flexible, hybrid arrangements, Cloud professionals with expertise in cloud engineering and security will be critical personnel for a well-rounded tech team.

What job type or area of Cyber Security should I specialise in? 

Critical roles that are seeing increasing demand include Cyber Security Governance, Risk and Compliance, as well as Security Engineering and Architecture. That said, you’re certainly not limited to these jobs. There are loads of opportunities out there from people and process-based areas of Relationship Management, User Education, Risk Analysis, Strategy and Road Mapping.  
 
Cyber Security isn’t always a linear career, so our advice is to keep a broad view especially if you’re just starting out in your career. Cyber – like so many disciplines – requires true diversity of talent and thought, so work on picking up skills and experience in areas including Infrastructure Applications, Processes, and Data Security to enhance your knowledge and capabilities. You can always specialise later on in your career.   

How much does a Cyber Security Analyst earn in Malaysia?

Salaries will vary depending on the role, location, and type of company. Cyber Security Analyst salaries typically average between RM120 - 360K. Cyber Security Architects can expect RM240 - 420K, while Cyber Security Consultants earn between RM216 - 480K.

What qualifications can increase my Cyber Security salary?  

At entry level, MTA Security Fundamentals, ISACA CSX Cyber Security Fundamentals Certificate, CompTIA Security+, GIAC Information Security Fundamentals (GISF) and (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) are great for core knowledge. If you’re starting to think about leadership roles, qualifications such as CISSP, CISA, CCSP, and CISM will give you the edge.  
 
Equally important is relevant experience and specialist skills – employers will want to see that you’ve been working in a dedicated Cyber Security role, instead of doing it as part of a wider scope.   

What industries are hiring Cyber Security professionals?

As cyber-attacks and threats of attacks rise, any organisation that uses computerised systems will be concerned about security and will be looking to hire! Larger organisations in Financial Services, Retail/Consumer, Internet, Manufacturing, and Life Sciences are obvious places to start your search.   
 
If you’re just starting in your Cyber Security career, you could give SMEs a shot as these companies are more likely to hire a security professional into a broader role and could be more flexible on technology and experience.
