We have a fantastic opportunity for a Graduate IT Security Analyst looking to start their career in a fast paced, digital centre of excellence. You will work at the heart of our business to support the delivery of services critical to the performance of the organisation.

Information Security and data protection is crucial to our business.

You’ll also perform risk assessments of third party suppliers with access to N Brown data, agreeing appropriate risk mitigation plans to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of this data.

What you’ll be responsible for:

  • Working with project delivery teams to ensure that all plans include adequate security controls, documenting any gaps with IT Security policy and standards and ensuring appropriate mitigation plans agreed and delivered
  • Working with N Brown IT colleagues to ensure that access control methods and other security controls remain effective and fit-for-purpose and are administered correctly
  • Development and implementation of a rolling programme of third party risk assessments to assess third party compliance with N Brown’s Information Security Policy, identifying gaps and ensuing appropriate risk mitigation plans are agreed and delivered
  • Maintenance of personal and corporate awareness of current Information Security Issues, e.g. emerging vulnerabilities  and zero-day exploits, and to identify appropriate risk mitigation counter-measures
  • Providing advice, guidance and support to people and teams across N Brown on the subject of Cyber Security and IT Risk Management
  • Day-to-day administration of the Cyber Security team including, for example, maintenance of risk registers, production of Security MI and KPI’s and overseeing the completion and delivery of IT audit actions

What you’ll need to succeed:

We’re looking for a knowledgeable and ambitious graduate to join our team. You should have a minimum 2:1 degree in a Cyber Security related field such as Information Security, Computer Security or Forensic Computing. Ideally, you’ll have some work experience in an IT Security environment however this is not essential.

You’ll need to be highly self-motivated, organised and eager to learn. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are essential as you’ll be liaising with colleagues and teams at all levels of the business on a regular basis.

You should be a natural problem solver with a positive and flexible outlook, along with the ability to manage a varied workload in a rapidly changing environment.

In return for your hard work and commitment, you’ll receive a competitive salary and benefits package, whilst also having the opportunity to develop in the field of cyber security.
