This critical role supports the internal SOC and the directing of an outsourced tier 1 - 2 SOC MSSP to deliver robust security operations. Our Gaydon site has over 10,000 employees and the UK's largest Hybrid Engineering Team. We are building our first ever SOC so this is a great chance to be involved in a greenfield project, therefore we are looking for those with ambiiton who can help us to shape our capability.

What to expect:

You'll be responsible for monitoring, detecting, containing and remediating security incidents utilising a suite of security software tools. You will monitor security events received through alerts from SIEM or other security tools whilst maintaining the assigned ticket queue. You'll carry out limited incident response to end users for low complexity security incidents as well as actively participating in the resolution of incidents, even after they are escalated.

You'll also be responsible for managing a suite of Security Products and using your expertise to offer SME advice to security driven projects. You'll apply threat intelligence to build a picture of emerging issues within the SOC and handle incidents across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. You'll actively maintain awareness of developments in the fields of intrusion analysis, incident response and information security whilst maintaining SecOps documentation.

What you'll need

You should have experience of handling incident responses and an understanding of cyber security threat scenarios and countermeasures. General network knowledge of tcp/ip troubleshooting is beneficial as is an understanding of common Intrusion Analysis models (e.g. Cyber Kill Chain®) and the ability to apply them to enhance analysis and reporting. You might have knowledge of current threat landscapes, malware operations, indicators, and known examples of APTs.

We'd like someone who can identify developing patterns and trends in data whilst having an understanding of technology. You should have an understanding of common Intrusion Analysis models and be able to rapidly distinguish between genuine and false detection events and respond appropriately. It is good to see anyone who has either CEH, CompTIA Security+ or GSEC.
