Cybersecurity Analyst

Cybersecurity Analyst

Hiring for 2021 with flexible start date. Ideal for Graduating Candidate!

As a Cybersecurity Analyst, you will play a pivotal role in securing our clients’ infrastructure, data and software.  You will make a huge difference in not only helping Fractional CISO and our clients, but also society as a whole with our fast moving, passionate focus on smartly improving our client’s cybersecurity.

At Fractional CISO, we do not provide day-to-day security operations for our clients. Instead, we specialize on providing the best possible cybersecurity leadership.  While we value candidates with operational experience, this role is NOT the same as a Security Operations Center (SOC) analyst!  The job duties here do NOT involve monitoring logs, responding to security alerts, patching systems, running vulnerability scans, or other routine security tasks.  If you have experience as a SOC analyst but are looking for a new challenge that will advance your career towards thoughtful cybersecurity leadership, this may be a great position for you!

In this position, you will work as a team with a vCISO client manager to provide cybersecurity leadership and program management directly to our clients.  You will work with a wide range of mid-sized companies across many industries to develop and deliver the components of a good cybersecurity management program, including:

  • Leading Internal Audits to ensure our client environments stay secure.
  • Planning and running training exercises to help our client’s employees practice how they will respond to a cybersecurity incident.
  • Performing quantitative Risk Assessments for clients so they can understand where to make smart investments in their cybersecurity.
  • Responding to security questionnaires from our clients’ customers so they can grow their businesses.
  • Writing policy documents to build up our clients’ cybersecurity programs.
  • Assisting with evidence collection to help our clients prepare for external compliance audits.
  • Providing advice and guidance to clients on a wide range of cybersecurity topics.

The right candidate for this position will possess all of these skills:

  • A passion about solving clients’ security challenges
  • High personal and professional ethical standards
  • Well-developed technical writing skills
  • Quantitative or analytical work/school experience
  • 0-2 years of cybersecurity experience

In addition, highly qualified candidates will likely possess some of these skills:

  • Technical experience in any of these areas:
    • Security Operations
    • Secure Software Development Lifecycle (S-SDLC) practices
    • System Administration (Windows, Linux)
    • Cloud Administration (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud)
    • Network or firewall administration
  • Knowledge of security operations tools, systems, and practices (SIEM, WAF, vuln scans, pen tests, system hardening, MFA, SSO, etc.)
  • Able to explain at a high level how the Internet and websites function
  • Familiar with core networking concepts, protocols, and common services
  • Understanding of encryption concepts and SSL/TLS certificates
  • General scripting or coding experience
  • Cybersecurity certifications (SSCP, CompTIA Security+, etc.)
  • Experience with any security frameworks (NIST CSF, CIS, COBIT, etc.)
  • Experience with any compliance standards (SOC2, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, etc.)
  • Cybersecurity degree
  • Other technical degree with some cybersecurity experience

We are committed to providing guidance and support to the right Cybersecurity Analyst candidate so they can accelerate their cybersecurity career. What we ask in return is that the candidate bring a passion for cybersecurity, a strong work ethic, and demonstrated excellence in their prior positions or coursework. We value diversity and believe that qualified candidates are just as likely to come from a non-traditional work or educational backgrounds.
