Information Secruity Analyst - London

Technology. Award-winning customer service. Bleeding-edge data ability.

Simply Business is a new type of insurance company, using all of the above to create the best possible insurance experience for small businesses and self-employed people.

We love working here, and have even taken the number one spot in the Sunday Times Best Company To Work For 2015 and 16 lists; we’ve stopped entering now to focus on a few bigger projects, but you get the idea. It’s a great place to work.

There are currently over 425,000 active Simply Business insurance policies in the UK alone. And we have offices in London, Northampton and Boston, USA.

Talking of offices, ours are bright, airy and geared up for really smart working. We’re flexible, with plenty of remote workers coming in and out, and we believe work and life should be hand in hand, rather than a juggling act. So no need to worry about school pick-ups, or a horrible commute.

Our people are our most important asset, so we focus on building a working life that helps us thrive, not stick. Join us and you’ll be part of our journey to creating something even better, for our customers and ourselves.

The role

Reporting to the Head of Information Security you will exercise a great deal of autonomy to assist the business in managing their information risks.

As a Information Secruity Analyst you will:

  • address security issues as an enabler, not a blocker
  • deliver security services in an agile / lean environment
  • articulate the “why” of what you do to both technical and non-technical people
  • contribute to establishing a security culture throughout the business

Responsibilities include:

  • developing and managing our risk & compliance system, working with the wider business to assist in managing their information risks
  • advising on the creation, implementation and revision of security policies, regularly presenting issues and recommendations
  • supporting vendor and third party supplier assessments
  • supporting security incident management processes and remediation
  • managing security awareness across the organisation
  • implementing and operating threat and vulnerability management, ensuring that emerging weaknesses and risks are analysed and mitigated in a timely manner

What we are looking for:

  • experience establishing and maintaining risk management practices
  • experience with GRC, ISMS, GDPR, PCI, ISO 27001
  • experience writing and implementing security policies, procedures & guidelines
  • good understanding of data protection and how InfoSec supports privacy
  • good understanding of IT security practices
  • understanding of ISMS, how it is implemented and maintained.
  • familiarity with threat modelling and how to apply it to risk management
  • familiarity with information security maturity models, e.g. C2M2

What are the benefits?

There’s all the serious (but important) stuff we call ‘core benefits’. On top of that, you can pick and choose from the more exciting options we offer – whether it’s a full gym membership or gym subsidy, comprehensive private health cover, extra holiday, or a National Trust pass.

The ‘core’ stuff

Some of these will kick in once you’re confirmed in post, but here’s the summary:

  • a salary that reflects your experience, our pay policy and the market we’re in from your first day, generous annual leave
  • life assurance (financial cover for your family, should the worst happen)
  • a cash plan to reimburse your everyday medical expenses
  • an extra day off if you get married or move house
  • an automatic enrolment pension (employer-matched at 5%)

The fun stuff

Passed probation? Time to pick and mix from things like:

  • a full gym membership
  • private medical insurance
  • extra days annual leave
  • shopping vouchers
  • dental insurance
  • travel insurance

But there’s so much more to Simply Business than insurance and memberships. We also commit to flexible working options, smart working (our offices are kitted out for you to work when and how you choose), cycle to work, eye test vouchers, and season ticket loan schemes, and we have a handy online form to put in any training or conference requests.

Best of all, though, are the groups, clubs, and adventures that come with the Simply Business territory. Forget a simple Give As You Earn scheme (although we’ve got that too) – we trek the Sahara for charity, take you on weekends away, throw epic summer parties, and meet up for book groups, public speaking coaching, yoga, manicures, beer brewing, and lots, lots more.
