Job description

Requisition ID:  518321

At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all. 


EY Technology:


Technology has always been at the heart of what we do and deliver at EY. We need technology to keep an organization the size of ours working efficiently. We have 250,000 people in more than 150 countries, all of whom rely on secure technology to be able to do their job every single day.  Everything from the laptops we use, to the ability to work remotely on our mobile devices and connecting our people and our clients, to enabling hundreds of internal tools and external solutions delivered to our clients.  Technology solutions are integrated in the client services we deliver and is key to us being more innovative as an organization.


At the root of the security offered to EY Technology is Cyber Threat intelligence, the team responsible for identifying, researching, and reporting on the evolving and emerging threats facing the firm.  Cyber Threat Intelligence prides itself on providing the firm with early warning and detection through predictive analysis that identifies and mitigates threats which may otherwise hinder operations.


EY Technology supports our technology needs through three business units:


  • Client Technology (CT) - focuses on developing new technology services for our clients. It enables EY to identify new technology-based opportunities faster, and pursue those opportunities more rapidly.
  • Enterprise Workplace Technology (EWT) – EWT supports our Core Business Services functions and will deliver fit-for-purpose technology infrastructure at the cheapest possible cost for quality services. EWT will also support our internal technology needs by focusing on a better user experience.
  • Information Security (Info Sec) - Info Sec prevents, detects, responds and mitigates cyber-risk, protecting EY and client data, and our information management systems.   


The opportunity


The TIBER-EU Analyst will report to the Global Lead for Cyber Threat Intelligence within Cyber Defence and provide senior-level engagement with Information Security, Risk Management, the firm’s service line leaders, and external entities with a primary focus on representing EY in TIBER-EU.  Efforts will strategically shape and guide the approach the firm takes to protect its people and assets in the cyber environment.  The analyst will be in the position to inform and influence leadership with creative, innovative approaches to detect and defeat complex threats for a global firm.  Significant time will be spent conducting independent liaison and briefings within and outside EY, specifically with the TIBER-EU program to continuously improve and harden EY’s defenses.


Your key responsibilities


This role will be the primary point of contact between EU regulators and EY on cyber security programs and initiatives. In addition to coordinating cyber-related activities aligned with those programs, this role provides a local Cyber Defense presence for other security-related matters, with a focus on threat intelligence.  Significant time will be spent mentoring and influencing the development of the CTI function to determine how it will influence EY’s defensive posture and business decisions.  CTI analysts regularly collaborate with Cyber Defence partners to generate creative, non-traditional solutions to the everchanging threat landscape. The analyst will be responsible for maintaining liaison relationships and information-sharing partnerships across multiple organizations for the betterment of EY and the community.

  • Subject matter expert in Strategic and Tactical Cyber Threat Intelligence
  • Personable and effective relationship development
  • Demonstrated ability to distil complex, technical data into clear, concise explanations
  • Expert experience with analytical tradecraft
  • Expert understanding of information security and cybersecurity principles

What we look for

We are looking for an experienced, self-driven analyst that can operate independently and improve the team’s global awareness and understanding and provide expert support to the CTI team.  The ideal candidate will seek to improve others while continuously learning and identifying ways to strengthen the team’s technical collection and analysis to advance our Cyber Threat Intelligence program.  The CTI team requires a positive attitude, self-starting mentality, and an ability to self-manage time and adhere to deadlines.
