Would you rather have a security guy do it or a IT professional?

I would prefer someone who knows what they're talking about and knows what they're doing.

I...I don't know what's the difference between the two. I actually thought that the digital security guy is a subset of the IT professionals as a whole.

Security deals only with networks mostly, once in a while an individual infected machine,  where the IT pro is mostly administration, signing in or out new or departing users.  The real service guy, the one who fixes the hardware is usually pretty well versed in how both categories work to help solve issues and can deal with most minor software issues.

IT professional could cover an array of jobs within the IT industry so I find that one hard to answer.
