Job Description
Solutions and Digital is a division of KPMG UK that develops and delivers innovative, technology-enabled solutions to solve clients’ complex business problems.
Here in the Security Operations team, we are tasked with keeping these solutions safe and sound on a day to day basis, and we are good at it! But we could be even better.
And that’s why we are seeking a passionate and adaptive manager to join our awesome Security Operations team and help take the reins on monitoring and developing the day to day security of the Solutions and Digital division of KPMG.
The person we are looking for will work with the Security Operations team lead as an all-around information security specialist, act as a senior connection point for junior team members and also as a deputy for the Security Operations Team Lead.
What we are looking for from you

- You’ll be a security evangelist; providing a view of operational security to stakeholders right across the firm and to external clients.

- You’ll help oversee the protective controls in place across the estates and ensure action is taken in areas of high risk.
- You’ll be able to provide technical/hands-on guidance on the tools we use and how to use them better; you’ll be familiar with tools such as firewalls, vulnerability scanners, AV tools, intrusion prevention/detection tools and SIEMs.
- You’ll help the team be well prepared for all types of incidents, including helping to ensure any forensic needs are accommodated and that we learn from any incidents to prevent reoccurrences.
- You may need to get involved in particularly complex security incidents so you need to know your way around information systems pretty well.
- You’ll help ensure that our leaders have the low-down on what our team is working on, where we’re having trouble and how well we are doing; you’ll need to be good at writing easy to understand reports but with a keen eye for detail!
