Question:

Asselamwaalekum.

I work for an IT company which has won a bid to give IT services for a post office which gives many services like banking, insurance, mobile phone services, on-line marketing mailing services and so many other. My job is only to protect the websites of all these activities of the post office from cyber attacks. Is my earning halal?

Answer:

Bismillah

Yes it is permissible and your earning is halal. Messenger of Allah said, 'The halal is clear and the haram is clear and in between them there are ambivalent matters which many people do not know.'  (Bukhari;52, Muslim:1599)There is nothing haram or ambivalent in your job.

OnlyAllah knows best
