Corporate Security Jobs

Corporate Security Job Overview

Corporate security jobs can cover a wide range of specialties, including theft prevention guards and security analysts. The type of position that one pursues will greatly affect education requirements, job growth, and salary; however, there are commonalities across the industry. Some basic duties include:

  • Surveillance
  • Preventing theft
  • Detaining accused criminals until police arrive
  • Providing evidence for prosecution
  • Improving security systems
  • Restricting access to sensitive areas and data

Candidates who enjoy working directly with the public should consider security guard jobs. Those who prefer using complex information systems should consider pursuing careers in information security.

Corporate Security Job Education Requirements

Security guards should have high school diplomas or the equivalent. The job typically requires a short period of on-the-job training. Information security analysts need a bachelor's degree, preferably in a subject such as mathematics or computer science. Although the jobs do not require graduate degrees, professionals who earn master's or doctoral degrees often have more job opportunities that earn larger salaries.

With some additional training, security guards may pursue careers as security specialists and chief security officers.

Corporate Security Job Market

Security guards can expect their industry to grow by 12 percent between 2012 and 2022, adding 130,200 jobs to the market. This is an average growth rate for U.S. industries. Information security specialists can expect rapid industry growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the industry will grow by 37 percent between 2012 and 2022. That's 27,400 jobs in addition to the 75,100 that existed in 2012.

People working corporate security jobs have more employment opportunities depending on where they live. California, for instance, had over 140,000 security jobs in 2013 while Illinois had 50,990. Illinois is still one of the top five markets for security guards.

For corporate security jobs that oversee information technology, Virginia is a top market with 10,330 positions in 2013. Other large job markets include California (8,260), Texas (6,550), and New York (5,040).
