A conventional way to find a job opportunity via an online job portal, is to enter a search term that is based on a job title (e.g. "Cyber Security Engineer", "Information Security Risk Analyst" etc.). However, it can be incredibly useful to conduct job research based on search terms relating to cyber, technology and operational management (e.g. terms like "siem", "ci/cd", "ISO27001" etc.), rather than focusing on job titles alone. Cyber, technology and operational management search terms typically appear across many published job roles, that can often be missed when searches are limited to job titles only!
