Were currently looking for a Senior SOC Analyst to join forces with a leading IT Consultancy based in the heart of London. If youre a selfmotivated professional with demonstrable competence and capability in a SOClike environment (or even just a SOC!) then this might be the right role for you. As a Senior SOC Analyst, you will be leading a team of Junior SOC Analysts aiding in protecting client infrastructure through monitoring of SIEM solutions and a variety of other security devices found in a SOC environment (e.g. Vulnerability Scanners, Behavioural Analytics tools, IDS/IPS). You will one of the higher point of escalation for incident triage/handling, dealing with the most complex and high priority events from a range of clients within a broad range of sectors (from blue chip behemoths to SMEs and even startups) with an additional lead analyst for you to refer partiularly complex incidents on to if needed. Youll occasionally get to go out and meet with clients too, performing basic clientfacing activities such as service reviews or discussing improvements to their security posture (VERY minimal travel, though, the role is mostly SOC/technical based). Theyre great in terms of progression options with the company being a consultancy its in their best interests to provide you with training and development to help you progress from a professional standpoint and further to this they like to actively promote people upwards and laterally within the company (many of their Senior Management have worked their way up from entrylevel roles and others made careers from the wider opportunities theyve been provided within the firm). Do you have the experience and desire to work in a fastpaced, high pressure environment? If so, then this could be the perfect next step in your career. Ideally youd have: 1.52 or more years experience working within a SOC environment (preferably with a background in IT/Networking/Network Security/Cyber). Certs/Training: GIAC Certifications: GSEC, GCED, GMON, GCIA, GCIH, GCFA (CREST certs would be good too but I appreciate that not many people have them e.g. CCIM, CCNIA, CCHIA). Also you dont *need* to have certs, theyre just useful in baselining your analytical abilities. SANS Courses: SEC401, SEC501, SEC511, SEC503, SEC504, FOR578. Skills: SIEM Monitoring & Incident Handling/Response, IDS/IPS Monitoring, Forensics/Malware Analysis, Threat Hunting with or without Analytics/UBA, Threat Intelligence usage. Senior stakeholder management & client facing abilities (not massively important). Service management experience (preferably to ITIL v3). If you feel this role would be of interest to you, do feel free to give me an email on a.fernandes[att]computerfutures[dot]com with an uptodate version of your CV and a good time that we may speak. Alternatively, I am available by phone on ##### ######or on LinkedIn (Andrew Fernandes, Computer Futures). If you know anyone that might be interested in the role, dont be afraid to point them in my direction; were currently offering £200 of John Lewis vouchers to anyone who refers someone that later gets a job through us!
