Can you please help me understand the difference between those three titles "Cyber Security Architect vs Security Architect vs Enterprise Security Architect" ?

Some organisations don't differentiate between the three titles, but say in an ideal world or in a big organisation with clear separation of duties..what is the difference?

    From job searches I've done, they all seem to be interchangeable. The only difference among those three that I've sometimes seen is that the Enterprise Security Architect would sit within the overarching EA team, and not in the InfoSec team. But mostly just interchangeable.

    Infosec job titles are totally randomized depending on the company, HR, IT, job description author, etc. Need to look at the actual job duties to know what each particular one means.

    is a great doc for people looking to standardize these things. Recommended for anybody writing job descriptions for infosec peeps
