Senior Security Specialist - Cyber Defence

Why is our Cyber Defence team the next step for you?

As part of this team, you’ll provide cyber security incident analysis and support on a global scale. You will be a crucial member of a team that are integral to Worldpay’s ongoing success.

This is a senior role within Worldpay and will give you the opportunity to deputise for the Head of Cyber Defence while mentoring and coaching other members of the team. Working across multiple security disciplines, you’ll find there are many opportunities to grow and develop your skills within Cyber Security.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

As a senior member of the team, you’ll be expected to take responsibility for more complex/escalated incidents within security. You will take a lead on security incident response and forensic investigations, while recommending continuous ways to improve our processes internally.

Working with colleagues across Worldpay, you will ensure that our platforms are active and delivering the most efficient protection and value. You’ll be expected to produce detailed documentation on incidents and will need to be able to summarise this to senior stakeholders outside of technology.

You’ll proactively keep up to date on emerging threats, and will be able to articulate their potential impact to Worldpay while recommending effective strategies to mitigate them.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You’ll currently be working within Cyber Security and will have proven experience leading on security initiatives within an organisation. You’ll have in depth knowledge of security technologies and experience with SIEM-based analysis and development. Working in environments subject to compliance standards (PCI DSS, ISO 27001 etc) you’ll have extensive experience with proactive threat hunting, incident response to security issues and threat management.

As we’re a fast paced organisation, you’ll be able to cope with pressure and be adaptable to change. You’ll be an excellent communicator, able to engage with stakeholders across the business at all levels.
