Right now I am an analyst in our SOC (Security Operations Centre). As a SOC Analyst, we are kind of the ‘front line’ for our customers. As SOC analysts, we are primarily responsible for the initial investigation and triage of potential security-related events for our customers, ensuring that their environments and networks remain safe! Although a lot of the job is responding to events happening in real-time, a large part of the job is also being proactive with customers cybersecurity, such as performing vulnerability scans and vulnerability management processes. But every day in the SOC is definitely a little different than the last, which keeps you on your toes!
Definitely the culture that has been established here. It’s a smaller company that is growing very quickly, and because of that, there is an established winning/successful culture. I have found that if you work hard and put out good work, you will definitely be rewarded. Secure Sense is also a very co-operative and collaborative place to work. Because we are a small company that is growing, you get work with all departments throughout the day and know everyone on a first name basis. Lastly, we have a ping-pong table!
Love to learn! This industry is changing/evolving so rapidly that loving to learn new things and expanding your knowledge should almost be a prerequisite. Also, Secure Sense offers a ton of access to resources to help all of their employees learn as much as they can in a variety of different areas of expertise. As mentioned before, Secure Sense if a very co-operative work environment, so definitely come ready to work well as a team!
Playing on the company slo-pitch team for sure has been a highlight so far. It was a fun time to get to know my colleagues a little better and see everyone outside of the office!
