Currently working with a Global Defence company who are looking to compliment their already well-established Cyber Security Operations Centre with an experienced Senior SOC Analyst. The client have a very mature SOC in place already, with a lot of the Analysts coming from a development background, allowing them to build and develop a lot of their own proprietary tooling using open sourced stacks.

As a Senior Analyst you will help take this SOC Monitoring and Investigations capability to the next level and lead in the transition to a pro-active, intelligence driven threat hunting function. You will also be working directly alongside the SOC Manager to drive the security orchestration and automated response (SOAR) facility, fine-tuning the tooling in place to drive efficiency and free up time to engage in purple teaming activities. You will have freedom to research into the latest threats across the cyber landscape as well as budget and investment in you to gain professional certifications.

Key Skills & Responsibilities

* Knowledge of Network defence monitoring technologies, Open Source Investigation tooling and Sandboxing technologies for static and dynamic malware analysis.
* Strong knowledge and application of various Cyber Defence methodologies including Cyber Kill-Chain and MITRE ATT&CK Framework.
