As a Senior SOC Analyst, you will be working for a global IT Services firm that is looking to expand their Security Operations Centre (SOC) in London. They're looking for people from all exprience levels so if you're a L4 Threat Hunter or even doing some more basic SIEM monitoring and want to take your experience to the next level then this could be the right job for you.

Working as part of a team of analysts, you will be specialising in proactively monitoring their high profile IT estate, monitoring Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) systems and managing associated incident response processes, undertaking security vulnerability management and using threat intelligence alongside APT hunting tools to search for threats.

There's excellent opportunities for progression internally with opportunities to move up the ladder into more senior roles and eventually management in addition to lateral movement to other teams (e.g. Consultancy, Engineering, Architecture, Pre-Sales).

You would need a working knowledge of the following areas:

Security Monitoring tools and their use (e.g. SIEM, IDS/IPS, DLP).

Vulnerability Management

Perimeter and host security intrusion techniques.

Network Protocols.

Threat Intelligence

It would be beneficial (but not necessary) to have any of:

Relevant GIAC or CREST qualifications (e.g. GCIH, GCIA, GREM, CC NIA).

Incident Response experience (from a Consultancy or SOC environment)

Big Data / Security Analytics / Threat Hunting experience.
