Job description

Trident Search have partnered with a global trading platform to help hire the lynchpin in their security team; the SOC Manager.

Without the fluff this role is summed up in 3 words challenging, greenfield, and unconventional.

You will oversee the triaging team behind over 1600 endpoints, on prem/cloud apps and hundreds of servers across the globe.

This role is particularly unconventional as we need to find a very technical manager. For example, someone not afraid to get their hands dirty and build automation process for detection and response etc.

  • Lead the development and execution of a holistic SOC strategy that proactively protects, detects, and responds to sophisticated and dynamic cyber threats, while ensuring the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of vital assets and data.
  • Attract, coach, and retain a diverse and skilled team of SOC engineers and security analysts, foster a culture of collaboration and excellence, and encourage ongoing learning, innovation, and knowledge-sharing across different regions and time zones.
  • Oversee, maintain (and potentially create our own) security tools and technologies, such as SIEM, IDS/IPS, and threat intelligence feeds.
  • Prevent issues from recurring. Establish, implement, and continuously enhance incident management processes, procedures, and workflows that reduce the impact of security incidents on the business and its customers.
  • 10+ years in Security or IT
  • Ideally 5+ years managing a SOC team, although flexible.
  • Technical knowledge of SOC processes (Threat Detection, IR, Red Teaming etc)
  • Ability to stay calm and collected in stressful situations

Apply now and in a few months time you could be managing a team at the forefront of proactive security monitoring!
