Staffordshire University is looking for an Ambitious and Inspirational individual to join our Digital Services Security team for the post of Security Analyst on our Stoke site.

Keeping systems and data secure in a university environment is a challenging task. Staffordshire University operates large scale systems both on premise and in the cloud, with many systems that contain sensitive personal data, but operating within a network that needs to be open and accessible to our student community. Information security must constantly balance these competing demands and think differently to deliver flexible solutions that work for all stakeholders.

The Security Analyst will monitor the effectiveness of security controls, by undertaking automated and manual vulnerability assessments, monitoring network usage, assess the effectiveness of firewalls, reviewing system access for business applications and computer installations. As part of the role the security analyst will identify threats to the confidentiality, integrity, availability, accountability and relevant compliance of information systems.
The successful candidate will need to be experienced in the field of cyber security.

Key initiatives for the security team in the next 12 months include web filtering, multifactor authentication, managing unstructured data, aligning with ISO27001, and GDPR compliance.

Digital Services is a central department that provides vital services which underpin all the learning, teaching and University Business, ensuring that we are a truly Connected University.
