SOC Manager - Cyber Security Incident Response; London, £90K - £100K

Our client a FTSE 100 global Insurer are actively seeking a Senior Cyber Security Incident Manager to join their Global Cyber Security Incident Management function.

This is an exciting opportunity to work at the forefront of cyber defence operations, reducing the impact of cyber intrusions on their networks. You'll drive the response to higher severity cyber incidents through the best practice life-cycle and ensure root cause analysis is performed to support improvement of their controls.

The role focuses on stakeholder engagement and coordination and whilst we seek individuals from a strong IR background, we are also looking for someone looking to step up to a leadership role which by its nature require less hands-on technical response.

Essential Skills:

  • Significant previous experience in incident response
  • SOC background - ideally as a manager / lead
  • Ideally BSc in Computer Science or Vendor independent qualification in Incident Response and Forensics such as GIAC, GCIH or CREST.
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills
  • Strong communication skills


  • You'll drive the incident response life-cycle for serious cyber incidents by ensuring that the relevant parts of the business are engaged and activated to undertake the actions needed to reduce impact on our business.
  • You'll also be involved in the scoping and defining of our forensic requirements, as we benchmark our current capability against future requirements. Your subject matter expertise will be necessary in making the best possible choices.
  • When not responding to incidents, you will help develop our incident response capabilities, including writing and maintaining playbooks, assessing the incident response maturity, and assisting in table-top cyber-scenario exercises.
  • This is a senior level role with expectations of significant previous experience in incident response.

If this Senior Cyber Security Incident Manager role is of interest, please apply with an up to date CV.
