Summary of the role:

Information security analysts play a key role in protecting our customers from cyberattacks as they are the first to see the security alerts and the first to respond to cybersecurity incidents. Their main role is to filter out the false positive alerts generated by the security controls (through the associated correlation rules), to create a security incident whenever a security alert is detected as true positive and investigate the root cause of that security incident when possible.

As an information security analyst working in a Managed Security Service Provider (aka MSSP), our information security analysts are seeing alerts coming from many different security controls from a very diverse set of customers in multiple geographic regions. This is an ideal environment for those who are passionate for cybersecurity, have a thirst of knowledge and wants to ramp up or advance their cybersecurity skills in a challenging environment. Keeping the bad guys out is what motivates us!

Information security analysts need to be detail oriented because they are responsible for monitoring many aspects simultaneously.

  • Scan for vulnerabilities on the infrastructure of clients using our vulnerability detection system.
  • Recommend solutions that would improve the security posture of our customers.
  • Answer and respond to customer’s calls related to security incidents.
  • Fine tune the correlation rules with our information security specialists to reduce the amount of false positive alerts on the console.
  • Support Incident response and malware analysis occurring in customer’s environments.

 Technical skills

  • College degree or professional diploma in cybersecurity, or equivalent experience
  • Excellent technical knowledge related to network security
  • Excellent knowledge of the entire TCP/IP protocol stack and cryptography protocols
  • Excellent knowledge of firewall and intrusion detection/prevention protocols
