Security Analyst

Scroll to content

We are looking for a Security Analyst to join our team based in Croydon who will be responsible for operational support within the Information Security team. This is a hands-on position, and you will be responsible for implementing and managing security controls designed to prevent, detect, and respond to security threats and incidents.  You will also be the first line for all security related queries from colleagues, clients, and prospects.

Reporting to the Group Head of Information Security, this role would suit somebody already in an Information/Cyber Security role, or somebody with a strong background in Technology, with a good grasp of security concepts, who is looking to move into a security focused role.  Most importantly, you must be a motivated self-starter with a passion for technology; the desire to understand how it works; the ability to see what risks it poses.



 ·         To be the initial point of contact for security related queries from internal staff, clients, and prospects.

·         To liaise with technology and business teams to define and champion effective security operational practices and processes.

·         Monitoring of security tooling.

·         Providing incident response (detection, containment, and recovery activities).

·         Logging of security threats and vulnerabilities and ownership of resulting tickets until resolution. 

·         Maintaining the vulnerability management program.

·         Maintaining relationships with 3rd party security vendors and service providers.

·         Provide management reporting of security metrics.

·         To develop and improve existing policies, procedures, and controls. 

·         To maintain a high level of awareness of the cyber security threat landscape, and how it impacts the business. 

·         To conduct monthly audits to identify weakness and increase general security awareness within the company.

·         Respond to compliance security questionnaires


 Experience & skills

 ·         Experience in a similar security analyst role.  Alternatively, a Sys Admin, or DevOps role with security responsibilities in a Tech organisation. 

·         Be pragmatic and have the strong belief that the Security function should be an enabler, and whose role is to work with the business to achieve its goals.

·         Broad experience of technologies including, but not limited to; Firewalls, IPS & IDS, WAF, Modern Operating systems, Microsoft management tools, TCP/IP, Networks, Azure, Vulnerability management, Anti-virus, email and Web filtering.

·         Familiarity with processes and procedures surrounding security operations.

·         An understanding of core application development principles.  

·         Experience in developing people-centric security controls with a focus on awareness, prevention, detection, and response.

·         Great communication skills,

·         Ability to multi-task, prioritise, and work well under pressure, either individually or as a team.    

·         An understanding of the key principles of the EU GDPR/Data Protection Act 2018

·         Knowledge of best practice information security standards and frameworks, such as ISO 27001/2.

·         Security or general Information Technology related certifications would certainly be beneficial but not essential.
