Who you'll be working with

Capgemini has over 4000 Cybersecurity professionals. We protect their IT, industrial systems and the ever-growing number of products and systems enabled by cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT).

With incidents of cyber-crime frequently in the news, Capgemini's clients are increasingly conscious of the need to protect their systems and data. The successful applicant for this role will join Capgemini's Highland based UK Security Operations Team, which in turn forms part of the Company's Global Cybersecurity Unit.

The Highland Security Operations Centre (HSOC) has proven highly successful since its formation in 2014 and serves a range of government and commercial clients headquartered in the UK and Continental Europe. Successful applicants will have the chance to develop a career which in the future could see them working in areas such as Protective Monitoring, Threat Intelligence, Vulnerability Management, Penetration Testing, Digital Forensics and Identity & Access Management.

The HSOC does now have office space in Nairn, however do note that whilst some opportunity to work from the Nairn office does exist, all training will be done in Inverness.

The focus of your role

The role of Security analyst involves supporting multiple clients within HSOC, providing first contact for incoming alerts, incidents and requests. Working to defined processes you will be expected to help conduct incident triage, document all actions and implement relevant remediation steps.

  • Update your knowledge by participating in training opportunities and research latest information security trends

What you'll bring

  • The right mind-set, attitude and a desire to succeed are the main qualities we are looking for. Some relevant technical experience is useful, but not essential as providing there is aptitude, training will be given where needed.
  • Ananalytical mind-set with skills essential for security investigation and management work including:
    • The ability to spot and asses security risk wherever it may exist
    • An enquiring mind that does not necessarily accept things at face value
    • Excellent decision making skills
    • The ability analyse a situation and identify the best course of action
