My client, an innovative financial services organisation based in Surrey, UK, is seeking a Cyber Defence Lead to join the firm.

The client are undergoing a period of change and transformation, and need a technically astute security professional to join them and lead from the front for functions such as security operations and cyber threat intelligence. From a strategic perspective, you will assist the organisation in major programmes of cyber defence change, such as the current migration to the cloud, as well as planning for future developments within cyber defence. On a day to day basis, you will manage the above functions and people within them, as well as working on wider technical projects.

In order to be successful in your application, you must have prior experience within security operations and incident response as well as management experience. Ideally, you will have come from a technical IT/sys admin background before moving into security. Technical qualifications such as SANS courses are a plus, but the knowledge that underpins these is essential.

This is a fantastic and rarely seen position, please get in touch ASAP for immediate consideration.
