In this entry level role, Bloomberg will provide you the opportunity to apply your current skills, while rapidly developing new ones that are required in the Cyber Security field.

The Bloomberg CSOC is responsible for the detection of cyber threats, and when detected, responsible for the rapid response, across both the diverse lines of business and the global network. The CSOC is an open and collaborative environment, where members work together to identify and address the latest cyber security threats facing the company. The CSOC is to be staffed 24 x 7 x 365, with varying shifts, and multiple tiers of support, ranging from first response teams to the Computer Incident Response Team.
