Security Analyst

Position Description

As a full-time salaried Security Analyst, you will be a member of a growing and supportive Security Operations Center, working with a specialized team of security experts responsible for monitoring, analyzing, detecting, and responding to security events and incidents within multiple information networks. You will assist in deploying new security platforms, creating new and more efficient processes, and guiding customers in enhancing their overall security posture.

If you are already providing IT support, and are considering specializing in IT Security and are looking for an entry point, this position would be a perfect fit. We would expect to provide some initial training in performing Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) as well as providing significant, specific training on the technical tool that we use for SIEM.

Position Expectations

We are looking for people who will be able to meaningfully assess alarms generated by servers, applications, intrusion detection systems, and network appliances in enterprise environments. There should be a good variety of work each day, but there will be some common tasks that need to be performed daily to ensure our core commitments to our customers are met with respect to regular security log reviews and responding to potential concerns. You would not be expected to resolve any issues that are found, but rather report the issue to the customer and follow-up on the resolution or whether it was a false positive. Active assistance in tuning the alarms and improving our ability to have the best security posture with our customers will be expected after you develop into the position with the support of your fellow Security Operation Center team mates.

Several task-related administrative and organizational duties are required, making sure both routine tasks and newly assigned tasks (such as performing work to engage with a new customer) are efficiently and properly completed. Organization and communication skills are very important, as there will be a lot of information to both sort through and process. Professionalism and thoroughness is crucial in all customer communications, both written and verbal.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Assist in performing IT audit and risk assessment activities
  • Monitor and analyze security alerts across various platforms
  • Consult with customers during regular status calls
  • Develop and improve team policies and procedures

Required Skills

  • 1-3 years of related experience in information technology and/or information security preferred
  • Fundamental understanding of computer networking (TCP/IP)
  • Knowledge of creating Security Information Event Management (SIEM) tool rules
  • Familiarity with scripting languages such as Python
  • Knowledge of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and SIEM technologies
  • Extremely strong verbal and written communication skills

Preferred Skills / Certifications

  • Experience with Linux CLI
  • Security related certifications such as; Security+, CEH, CISSP, CISSA, CCNA, ACSE

Be sure to use the required cover letter to your best advantage. We'll be evaluating your written first impression. We look forward to receiving your application!
