Information Security Alert Analyst

University of South Wales

You will work with the IT Services Security Team performing duties of a “Tier 1” Information Security Alert Analyst. The successful candidate will be responsible for monitoring, analysing, and responding to security events and incidents, as well as identifying potential security risks and vulnerabilities.

You will be responsible for the initial risk-based triage and analysis of information security alerts. These are predominantly driven from our systems, Security Event Information Management (SIEM) platform, anti-malware technology and our end-users. You will either resolve alerts or escalate and assist other Information Security Team members in their resolution. You will also assist with major incident responses. You will also gain exposure to, and participation in information security related projects, process improvement activity, our information security certification pathways, and operational security meetings.

The role will regularly challenge your technical knowledge and its application to complex scenarios together with your interpersonal skills. The information security threat, vulnerability and mitigation areas are constantly evolving, and you will need to keep your knowledge up to date.

This role includes an on-call rotation and the occasional need to work outside of standard working hours.
