The Team
The three Egress security teams report to the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), these are:

Security Operations – the day-to-day management of operational processes and incidents
Cyber Security – defining security best practice of technologies

This role forms part of the SecOps team, which ensure that we operate our business in line with the defined policies and procedures and also manage all group security incidents.  This role requires a technical background and experience of working with public cloud technologies.

Whilst there are process aspects to the role there are two main areas of focus for the team:

Vulnerability management.  The team manage issues identified through internal and external vulnerability testing. Internally we use tools like Snyk (one of several tools available) to find issues in the software development lifecycle. Externally, SecOps work with a penetration testing company to define the scope of pentests and manage the process with engineering.  Once issues are identified SecOps work closely with operations and engineering teams to resolve them.
Incident management.  The team manage our security incident response activities, investigating alerts using tools such as Azure Sentinel.  SecOps will coordinate the incident response with resolving teams and engage with key stakeholders for updates.  As the team works office hours, engaging a managed SOC provider who cover 24X7 incident management.
SecOps engage with teams across the business and at all levels. In this role you will be a key contributor to maintaining a good security posture and building on our security culture.

Other duties include security awareness and training, security vetting and supplier onboarding.

The wider security team work closely together with opportunities for cross-training and career development. The management team actively support personal development, with access to training tools such as Skillsoft and O’Reilly.  We are looking for a candidate who can demonstrate key competencies and a desire to learn and apply new skills.  You will be supported with mentoring from across the team and have opportunities to learn in an environment that uses the latest technologies.

As a security company we also use our own products and services internally, and the SecOps team are encouraged to give feedback to the product management group to help further develop the capabilities of our products with real end-user feedback.

The security team are split between our London and Sheffield offices, but ensure we spend time in social activities and not just work.  Whether it’s a breakfast catch-up, a visit to an expo or one of our regular social events after work – we recently completed the National Three Peaks Challenge together.

The Role
Reporting to the Security Operations Manager, your key tasks may involve:

Managing vulnerability scanning tools – SAST, SCA, IaC, Containers & DAST for all Egress products
Investigate SIEM alerts, working with the Engineering and Operations teams to resolve issues
Managing vetting applications, supplier onboarding and security awareness programmes
Plan and manage 3rd party penetration testing
Support customer requests for information (RFI) on security related questions
Identify and contribute to our continuous improvement plan

The Person
As a member of the Security Operations team, you will work in a hybrid environment both independently and as part of a team, typically in the office 2 days per week.

You should have good prioritisation and organisational skills whilst able to stay calm in the event of a high priority incident.  You should have a technical background to be able to triage incidents, this requires an understanding of public cloud services.

You will need to be able to articulate your findings in a persuasive manner and apply good problem-solving skills.
