This is an outstanding opportunity for you, a SOC Analyst Level 4 or NSOC Level 4, to join a leading Network and Security Company in Central London.
The key skill we need is the ability to analyse and interpret information provided by security controls, including SIEM, and provide high-quality updates to our customers. A good understanding of the anatomy of an attack underpins this (ie what would someone do if they were trying to compromise a system etc). This is not the same as the skill-set needed to implement NW security controls.
You will be joining a team of highly skilled and passionate IT Security professionals and working to support leading organisiations with cutting edge, interesting and varied technical set ups. You will be responsible for:

  • Analysis of alerts arising from Security Event and Information Management tools. (SIEM) Ideally Arcsight, Splunk or similar.
  • Vulnerability Scanning and reporting - ideally on Qualys.
  • Implementation of next generation Intrusion Prevention Solutions based on Cisco Firepower, Checkpoint and Palo Alto technologies.
  • Creating / Modifying firewall configurations and policies for Cisco ASA, Checkpoint and Palo Alto.
  • Creating / Modifying device configurations across Cisco Security, switching, routing products.
  • To provide technical leadership to Level 1 and 2 Engineers
  • To work with and have a strong understanding of Cisco based network design and implementation (LAN and WAN) within mid-market and blue-chip organisations.
  • To work with service providers and network management platforms such as SolarWinds.

In order to be successful in your application, you should have:

  • Good experience with SIEM - Security Event and Information Management tools. Ideally ArcSight.
  • Excellent communication, written and verbal.
  • Ideally an upper 2nd degree in a relevant subject (this is not essential)
  • CompTIA Security or equivalent experience

Desirable but not essential skills would be:

  • GIAC Information Security Fundamentals or equivalent experience
  • ITIL Foundation certification
  • Checkpoint CCSE
  • Palo Alto ACE
  • ArcSight

Experience in any of the following (2 or more would be great):
Checkpoint, CCNA Security, CryptoCARD/RSA, F5, Forescout CounterACT, Riverbed Steelhead, SolarWinds, ArcSight.
