Job Title: IT Security Analyst 3 #16025 (7338U)
Job ID:    16025
Location:  Main Campus-Berkeley

This position is part of the Security Operations team and reports to
the Operations manager. The position is a one-year contract with the
potential to extend.


• Maintain security operations environment and working with other
operations staff to implement and extend security operations programs.

• Maintain the operations environment includes system administration
work: managing hardware replacement cycles, updating the standard RHEL
image, documentation of the baseline image and machines, coordinating
with other security staff to install and configure additional software
on top of the baseline image, very aggressive system patching, account
management, monitoring of services, responding to monitoring alerts,
and monitoring the backup process.

• Implementing several efficiency-related projects to system
administration will be an early responsibility for the position.

• Implement and extend security operations programs covers a very wide
array of activities, but will focus initially on log collection and
analysis in our SIEM deployment.

• Design and implement various logging and log relay strategies to
receive logs from a diverse set of applications and technologies on
campus managed by different teams, receiving and processing data from
critical infrastructure (BigFix, flow data, Secunia, hardware
firewalls, load balances, Active Directory, Kerberos, and others),
maintaining and ensuring logs from campus groups meet minimum
requirements, writing custom parsers for unusual log formats,
developing correlations in the SIEM, analyzing logs, and responding to
potentially critical security alerts identified by this log analysis.

• Future efforts will include tuning of operation security systems
(Nessus, Snort, Intrushield, Bro, and others), work with network taps
including potentially 100Gbit networking and openflow, evaluation of
new security software and appliances in order to meet specific
security standard objectives for campus, and participation in design
discussions for changes to the operational environment.
