Security Analyst

The Opportunity


Information Security is vital to keep our business operational as we begin our journey to help Britain achieve net zero. As a Security Analyst within our Enterprise Information Security Team you will be responsible for the analysis, operations and maintenance of systems security. 

You will regularly be using data collected from a variety of cyber defines tools such as IDS alerts, firewalls and network traffic logs to analyse events that occur to ensure we’re mitigating threats and also investigating, analysing and responding to cyber incidents. With these incidents in mind, you will be performing analysis of these from a variety of courses, e.g. individual host logs, metwork traffic logs, firewall logs and intrustion detection systems (IDS). 

You’ll provide timely detection, identification, and alerting of possible attacks and distinguish these incidents and events from benign activities. Alongside this, you will be providing real-time cyber defence incident handling to support our Incident Response Teams. 

The Skills and The Role


Being a Security Analyst at EDF means that you are solutions focussed, accountable and collaborative. We’re looking for a team player to ensure we meet our objectives.  We need you to have an awareness and interest in best practise surrounding Information Security and maintain that interest. We also need you to either already have or be able to maintain Security Check (SC) clearance. 

Skills in assessing security controls (e.g. CIS CSC, NIST SP 800-53), ability to recognise and categorise vulnerabilities in security systems and skills in protecting a network against malware are really important to us. If you also have experience using network analysis tools to identify vulnerabilities such as fuzzing and nmap, protecting networks against malware using NIPS, anti-malware and spam filters and dectection of host and network based intustoins via intrision detection technologies like Snort, we'd love to hear from you!

We have a full job description available and you can request this at application stage if you would like to view it.
