Job Description

Leonardo – Engineering the Future

Looking for a great start to your career in technology, earning and learning on a professionally accredited, award winning scheme?

We are looking to recruit the technical and business experts of the future through our nationally recognised, award winning Apprenticeship Programmes

Leonardo’s four-year Cyber Security Apprenticeship provides a wealth of learning and development opportunities including a Level 3 BTEC in ICT. The programme is tailored to provide a springboard into the world of Cyber Security, focused on the following areas:

·         Protective Monitoring – analysing network, application, security device and system log events to identify potentially abnormal or malicious system or user behaviours and raise them as incidents. These will then be investigated and, if appropriate, escalated to customer or technical resources for remedial action.

·         Incident Response – undertaking in-depth incident investigations, analysing malware, and conducting forensics acquisition and investigations including threat hunting and security research.

·         Device Management – supporting the ICT infrastructure that underpins the Security Operation Centre and our client-based monitoring points, and maintaining security devices including the deployment of detection signatures and patches.

·         Service Management – reporting, change management, service reviews, configuration management and Service Level Agreements.
