Security best practises and industry security requirements such as defence in depth, least privileged access, role-based access control, multi-factor authentication, shared responsibility, and zero trust model.

Be familiar with security protocols such as Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Internet Security Protocol (IPSec), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), disk and data encryption methods.
