Job Description


The Security Operations Center (SOC) Manager is a critical member of the Enterprise Security Office (ESO). This position will function as the interface between the Director of Security Operations strategic and process-based activities and the work of the analysts within the SOC. The SOC Manager must be able to translate the IT risk requirements and constraints of the business into technical control requirements and specifications, as well as develop metrics for ongoing performance measurement and reporting. This position will coordinate the technical operation activities to implement and manage the security operations center infrastructure, and to provide regular status and service-level reports to both the Director of Security Operations and IT management.

The SOC Manager is a leadership role that requires an individual with a strong technical security background, as well as an ability to work with the IT organization, and business management to align priorities and plans with key business objectives. The SOC Manager will represent the SOC requirements during IT planning initiatives to ensure that security measures are incorporated into strategic plans and that service expectations are clearly defined.

Expertise in leading security project teams and developing and managing projects is essential for success in this role. In addition to supporting the Director of Security Operations policies and strategies, this role must be able to prioritize work efforts — balancing operational tasks with longer-term strategic security efforts.

This position is responsible for managing a highly technical security staff as they work to accomplish company and personal development goals and must, therefore, have proven leadership skills.

  • Assist in the research, evaluation, design, test, recommendation, and implementation of new or updated SOC hardware or software.
