Your new company
You will be joining a growing global organisation that recognises Northern Ireland as a booming cyber hub and wants to grow their SOC team by bringing on board a new SOC manager. This company is expanding rapidly while also keeping a profitable business! They have a large SOC team that works remotely but have the option to visit their stunning Belfast based office (even if it is just for the odd staff day out). The company has gone from strength to strength, acquiring 3 businesses in the past 12 months, working across several areas of the cyber sphere.
Your new role
You will be a part of a 24x7x365 SOC team that operates worldwide. You will be responsible for the analysis of ongoing security incidents through the use of industry leading SIEMs and engaging with the company's customers to inform them on ongoing or upcoming security incidents they may need to be aware of. You will liaise with the company's sizeable internal team to ensure the best outcome for every customer and will work interdepartmentally to mitigate any potential customer threats. You will also get to take on a leadership role through the mentoring and coaching of L1 and L2 security agents.
What you'll need to succeed
To excel in this role, you will have previous experience working within a security based, technological environment. You will have a strong understanding and familiarity of operating systems fundamentals, be that windows or Linux. You will also have a strong understanding of Cyber Security fundamentals, such as types of attacks and how they benefit the attacker, while also displaying evidence of hands-on experience mitigating those risks by increasing system defensive and removing opportunities for system exploitation. Previous experience with security detection technologies is a must for this role, such as Firewalls, IDS or Log management technologies.
What you'll get in return
With the recent company growth, this role will come with a series of great benefits. Most importantly, a very negotiable salary, as the company recognises that skillset is the most important asset of any future employee. This is also coupled with generous holidays, a life assurance and Bupa health insurance scheme. You will also get to experience multiple staff days (most recently a virtual escape room) alongside other engaging activities and competitions!
