The Short Story:

Senior InfoSec Analyst position to join a team in a growing InfoSec function.  Ability to be hands on technical coupled with interpersonal and communication skills in working with business stakeholders is key.  Desire to learn and grow into a lead role is part of the position.  Background in SEIM Endpoint Security (Symantec / Crowdstrike), Security Architecture, Incident Response, Active Directory, Splunk, etc.

The Long Story:

You got into the Information Security sector at the right time.  Probably got some experience as a network engineer, and was pulled into it during an incident, or maybe just had an interest and kept chasing your passion.

Five or so years into it, your experience and skills grew deep and broad.  You gained an appreciation for the business value of InfoSec, not just from a loss avoidance and privacy perspective, but from the perspective of integrating seamlessly into business process and workflow.  You know the field evolves rapidly, and you kept with tools and trends.  You see the value of frameworks as a foundation for InfoSec programs. Dealt some significant breaches.  Been a part of building an InfoSec function at your company.  Been a part of governance and compliance efforts.  

But, frankly, your current environment is starting to lose its challenge.  Your earlier efforts have streamlined InfoSec (which is great), but your firm isn’t taking it farther, so your job is sliding into an operational mode.  You talk with colleagues at other firms, and are a bit jealous when you hear what they are doing.

Might be time to take the next step.

The Opportunity:

Our client is a well-known brand headquartered in northwest Ohio, with facilities across the country and overseas.  They are taking the next step with their InfoSec function, and leveraging the NIST framework to take it to the next level. 

The Cybersecurity team is growing to support the business, generating the need for an experienced InfoSec Analyst.  The day to day work will be broad and varied, and involve:
  • Working with vendors to evaluate, select, and implement new technology and tools to support initiatives.
  • Meeting with business stakeholders ranging from line managers to executives to understand needs and requirements, and integrate info security seamlessly into business processes and workflow.
  • Representing the InfoSec function on various teams and groups related to governance and compliance.
  • Working with other team members to respond to incidents as required.
  • Collaborating with the InfoSec Manager to set direction for the function.
  • Augment the InfoSec Manager in meeting with both local and remote stakeholders (Plant Managers, Product Development Managers, Accounting, Engineering, etc.).
What It Takes:

You’ll have depth and breadth of experience in various areas reflecting the above duties, as well as strong interpersonal and communication skills. You are known as the “InfoSec team member that can talk in business terms” and can relate concepts in a way non-technical people can grasp. 

But you don’t just talk the talk, you walk the walk.  You can switch hats and dive deep into tools and technology to figure out how something needs to work.  You like to stay close to what’s happening in the field and think about how developments apply to your work.  You are the first one to raise their hand to research and figure out a new tool or technology.

The following are the types of things relevant to this position.
  • SIEM - Security Information and Event Management
  • Endpoint Security (Symantec or CrowdStrike)
  • Incident Response
  • Active Directory
  • Patch Management
  • Security Architecture
  • Splunk
Equally important is desire and aptitude to learn, flexibility to adapt, and ability to work across an organization.  If you are the type that likes to stay heads down in a cube, this is not for you. 
Why This One:
You already know that there are tons of InfoSec jobs out there. What makes this one special is that the company is going through a rapid evolution to a customer focus, moving from a traditional “manage costs to a minimum” mindset to a “what does our customer need and focus on that” philosophy”.  As a result, new business is growing and revenue is up significantly.
And “customer” does not simply mean the end consumer or buyer.  Internal customers like associates and co-workers are part of the plan.  Work areas are being overhauled.  New common areas to encourage collaboration.  Even the cafeteria has changed.  Plus work flexibility on Fridays during summer.

We’ve know the hiring manage for years, and he is great to work with and as part of his team. Highly respected by his team and business partners.
