When you want to protect your home or business, you may decide to work with a self-employed security engineer. There is a huge misconception that these are people who have trained themselves within the industry and people worry they may not know what they are doing. But the truth is, self-employed security engineers have the same training as everyone in larger companies if not more. They will have gone through college and potentially university courses. They may have even worked for a larger company to gain more experience within the industry.
When you choose to work with a seld employed security engineer you are supporting a small business. A business that this sole trader has set up to make a living. Remember they do everything from social media, customer support, to the job itself. You are supporting their every aspect, helping them to make a living rather than put more money in a big companies pocket.
