Job description

IBM Security is seeking highly talented, undergraduate and graduate candidates to fill consultative, client focused, and security services roles.

We are in an era of advanced cybersecurity threats. These threats are persistent and continuously evolving. You need only read the newspaper to know how ever present and sophisticated hackers are today. The attacks are increasing in complexity and the impacts of security breaches on organizations can be devastating. Yesterday’s reactive security programs no longer equip organizations to approach security in a dynamic, strategic manner.
At IBM, our clients have security in mind and your job is to help them get there. As part of IBM’s security team, you will work with teams and clients as they transform organizational security. We’re driven by more than just providing security solutions for organizations. We want our clients to succeed. IBMers can access our entire organization to develop original ideas that help clients create the world they imagine.

At IBM Security, we partner with Fortune 100 clients to deliver real value by:
·  Bringing together the world’s largest consulting practice with industry-leading security research capabilities
·  Enriching business consulting with advanced security research, analytics and technologies
·  Solving complex client challenges and providing holistic solutions that incorporate people, processes, and technologies to improve security posture
·  Teaming on all phases of engagement to monitor, detect, plan, build, implement, and support advanced security solutions
·  Establishing new, flexible, and iterative approaches that only IBM can offer through our unique combination of skills, experiences and capabilities.
·  Providing our clients with an integrated approach to business design and execution, turning strategies into actions.
As a candidate in IBM Security’s Cybersecurity Early Professional (CEP) Program , you will get exposure to various teams, job functions, and roles within IBM Security Services. As part of this 12- 24 month program you will receive exceptional training working closely within Managed Security Services (MSS), Consulting, and Lab Services in a variety of roles during the first 12 months following the initial 2-3 months of onboarding and education. Job functions in MSS may include roles and responsibilities such as working with clients to remediate and answer questions about their security environment, participating in client calls, providing recommendations to clients on improving security posture, managing, troubleshooting, and maintaining Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), and Unified Threat Management (UTM) for a variety of technologies. Additional roles and responsibilities may include performing basic threat monitoring and alerting of security events or performing basic threat analysis and tuning of rules and policies to increase detection accuracy, to reduce false positives and to improve performance, as well as shadowing IBM Security consultants and participating in client engagements to further build your skills in security and prepare you for a career in IBM Security.

Throughout the program you will receive exceptional technical, consulting, and industry solution training, hands-on experiences, project participation, and structured mentorship that will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to make an immediate impact and achieve individual growth as a leader. Interacting with our security professionals will provide you the opportunity to gain further experience. Please note, participants may be required to travel up to 25% during the program.
