Hamilton Forth retained by Midlothian Council to appoint Cyber Security Analyst as part of firm-wide Digital Strategy hiring initiative

Cyber Security Analyst:

Pivotal to delivering our ambitions is a Digital Service that underpins this work, both now and in the future. Not only will you be supporting the development of new cyber defences, but you will also be helping create a more resilient organisation that can quickly respond to the evolving cyber security threats. You can make a real difference to the people who live and work here, collaborating with them and working in a dynamic and flexible environment

Reporting to the Information Governance and Security Lead – but liaising with a variety of staff at all levels, the Cyber Security Analyst will bring specific, critical and specialist skills to keep the organisation compliant with security standards such as PSN, CE+, PCI DSS, GDPR and Public Sector Action Plan. This is not a hands on technical role, but you should have a working knowledge of how to secure cloud and on-prem technologies, including evaluating supply chain risk and controlling those exposures, taking a pragmatic, risk-based approach to balancing security requirements with business needs.

You will also support the organisation’s evolution towards being digitally stronger and better connected. The work will be varied and interesting and every day you will face new challenges. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn and grow along the way. This role demands a progressive, forward-thinking individual who is capable of supporting digital change within the organisation and working to create a secure and resilient robust Digital platform.
