Location: Havant or Reading

Salary: £49565 - £65458 depending on skills and experience

Permanent/Full Time Hours

Our Role

With the increasing cyber risk to companies such as SSE, operating Critical National Infrastructure and managing highly confidential information, we need to ensure we maintain key controls to stay secure and compliant and to understand and manage the risks such businesses face.

As we grow the CRIS team to provide cyber risk and information security services as a trusted advisor to our SSE business, this operational role will be key to sustaining the existing security event triage and remedial actions required to reduce the impact or likelihood of a security incident. You'll be part of a team responsible for identifying risks, vulnerabilities and incidents and managing them to an acceptable risk level, with responsibility for monitoring the baseline security controls throughout the SSE Group and reporting on exceptions. You may also have the opportunity to support on baseline security controls for IT projects.

Your Skills and Experience

As a CRIS professional, you'll have advanced education in computer science, information systems or other related field alongside significant work experience in a busy security operations centre. You'll ideally have professional security management certification, such as a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), GIAC Security Essentials Certification (GSEC) or similar supporting credentials.

To perform successfully as a senior CRIS professional, you'll also have excellent attention to detail and a strong focus on customer service. With great communications and stakeholder engagement, you'll also demonstrate the ability to effectively manage your priorities within a heavy workload.

Above all, safety is at the heart of everything we do at SSE and we live by the mantra 'if it's not safe, we don't do it'.
