Cyberdefense Monitoring Analyst-Houston, TX

Here at Shell, there are so many opportunities to learn. This is a chance to build on your Information Security experience – you'll be part of a very visible global team using the best tools to protect the advanced IT systems that fuel our progress.

What's the role?

Life moves fast at Shell. Collectively, we're exploring innovative ideas and new energy sources to meet the growing global demand for energy, whilst also tackling climate change. So much of our progress depends on IT – and, in turn, on strong cyber security. As part of our 35-strong cyber security team, you'll join colleagues in India, the US and the Netherlands who play a vital, visible role protecting us from business disruption, data breaches and damage to our brand.

If you're keen to learn and grow, you'll be in your element here. You'll work across regions, on new projects involving new processes, tools and technology. The team has a shared pride in helping us stay one step ahead: scanning the horizon, seeing what others are doing in the field, and finding vulnerabilities, fast.

Specifically, the job includes carrying out real-time monitoring, detecting and reporting on potential cyber breaches across the Shell IT landscape using Splunk, FireEye, RSA, etc. By carefully analysing threats, you'll find the right balance between caution and false positives. You'll also carry out data harvesting and proactively check the performance of the monitoring tools we use including DS, desktop monitoring agents, NetFlow, DLP and Proxy.
