Job purpose:

As a Cyber Security Analyst your primary focus will be to detect and protect against potential cyber threats to preserve the security and integrity of CST’s data. A secondary focus will be to create contingency plans that the organisation will

Since cyber attackers are constantly using new tactics and strategies the cyber analyst must stay informed about the tools and techniques out there to ensure a strong defence. The role holder will work closely with the Director of Operations, IT Director, Compliance Officer, and other relevant internal stakeholders. The IT department works with industry-leading proprietary and standard security tools, other experts, and capabilities to protect and defend our organisations and staff, intellectual property and technology against wide ranging threats. The analyst must be able to problem solve on multiple workstreams by contributing to and supporting complex cyber-security and technology transformation programmes.

Your key responsibilities for this role are as follows: 

• Keep up to date with the latest security and technology developments.

• Plan for disaster recovery and create contingency plans in the event of any security breaches.

• Monitor for attacks, intrusions and unusual, unauthorised, or illegal activity.

• Test and evaluate security products.

• Use advanced analytic tools to determine emerging threat patterns and vulnerabilities.

• Engage in ‘ethical hacking’, for example simulating security breaches.

• Identify potential weaknesses and implement measures, such as firewalls and encryption.

• Investigate security alerts and provide incident response.

• Monitor identity and access management, including monitoring for abuse of permissions by authorised system users.

• Liaise with stakeholders in relation to cyber security issues and provide future recommendations.

• Generate reports for both technical and non-technical staff and stakeholders.

• Maintain an information security risk register and assist with internal and external audits relating to information security.

• Monitor and respond to 'phishing' emails and 'pharming' activity.

• Assist with the creation, maintenance, and delivery of cyber security awareness training for colleagues.

• Give advice and guidance to staff on issues such as spam and unwanted or malicious emails.

In this role, you should have the following personal profile: 

• 3+ years in a cyber security or related role in infosec or cyber security. 

• Either qualified by experience or to degree level in Information Technology, Cyber Security, Computer Science, or related subject. 

• Experience/knowledge of security standards and frameworks, such as Cyber Essentials Plus/ISO 27001/2, NIST CSF, CIS, or similar.

• Ability to translate technical requirements and their benefits to a non-technical audience and appeal to stakeholders.

• Ability to make good decisions in a timely way.

• Strong verbal, written communication, and presentation skills. 

• Ability to work pro-actively, follow direction and guidance, and be an active part of the team.

• Active interest in threats, trends, and issues across the cyber security industry. 

• Knowledge of the EU GDPR and UK Data Protection Act 2018.

• Proven self-management skills, including time management and the ability to work on multiple assignments concurrently
