My official title is Network Security Engineer, but it's really more like Network Janitor.
I get into the office, fight fires, look at logs, run reports on traffic patterns, write documentation, help on infrastructure design plans, do some firewall/router/switch work, tune the ID/PS, hunt down policy offenders, open tickets with vendors for various problems, interrogate hosts (scanning), listen to vendors when they come in and pitch their "next generation" xyz, add my two cents into change-control meetings, look at more logs, tick off checkboxes on any completed quarterly projects, capture traffic and do analysis, write emails, write more emails, write even longer emails, and more stuff that I can't remember right now. Every now and then, I get coffee.
Maybe after 9 - 11 hours when I can't tell what color the blinking lights are, I go home. I do less on the weekends.
