Hey folks, NYU is currently seeking a Network Security Analyst and a Senior Network Security Analyst position with our Technology Security Services group (TSS). The official job descriptions can be found at: Senior Network Security Analyst www.nyucareers.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=55216 Network Security Analyst -- posting #20093759 www.nyucareers.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=55232 Below is a brief, less formal/official outline of what we do and what we're looking for. If this looks interesting to you send an application in, and PLEASE send me or security@nyu.edu an email directly as well letting us know you've applied with your resume attached. For the Senior Analyst position we'd love to see a candidate with an academic understanding of each of the sections listed under "AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY" below, and who feels particularly strong in at least one or two. That being said we value smart, dedicated people over experience - see "INFORMAL QUALIFICATIONS" below - and we are also hiring for the non-senior position. So don't let a lack of experience keep you from applying! Note that your individual focus will vary based on your interest and experience and the needs of the group. We consider this a big benefit to working with TSS - you can spend 12 months on pen testing , decide your bored with that, and specialize in engineering or consulting for a while. Everyone does some security operations work. The starting salary is based on experience, and is highly competitive with other higher-ed technology positions. NYU ITS has a strong record of internal advancement, and offers excellent educational, health, retirement, and work/life benefits. New York University's main campus is located in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City, offering a wide array of social, artistic, and professional opportunities. We are the largest private University in the country, with over 38,000 full-time students, and one of the largest employers in New York City, with over 16,000 employees. INFORMAL QUALIFICATIONS ======================= * Critical Thinking: we need geeks. * Social Engineering: what other people call "people skills". * Team Fit: this isn't something you can know until you come meet us but we value team cohesion pretty strongly. * Security Background: experience in our field is always welcome. * Big Picture Thinkers: Some believe that analysts should solve the problem in front of them and leave the strategic "10 steps ahead" thinking to architects and managers. Not so with us. * General IT Background: As noted we run much of our own security infrastructure, and having a strong network or systems background might mean we lean on you to help keep that ship running. AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY ======================= TSS is a "one stop security shop" with our hands in a lot of pies, including: * Threat assessment * Policy and Compliance * Security Consulting * Education and Awareness * Security Operations/Incident Response * Forensic Analysis * System Engineering and Administration * Enterprise Initiatives Feel free to send me any questions, and of course let me know if you're considering applying!
