We protect Bloomberg

The Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC) works to understand the cyber threats we face as an organization, develops instrumentation for detection and monitors events 24x7 looking for suspicious activity. We proactively learn from current trends to build relevant detections and contextual understanding into the program. We strive to monitor meaningful security events around the clock, respond quickly, but always favor quality over speed. If an Incident occurs, we are prepared to engage appropriate stakeholders and take required actions as needed.

The CSOC department reports into the CISO, and we work closely with Engineering, Legal, Compliance, Investigations and many others across the organization to help unify security event monitoring and incident response. Our colleagues depend on us to be incident response pros that have a deep understanding of IT networks and systems. On any given day, the department may analyze cyber security events, hunt for suspicious activity, research and disseminate threat intelligence, identify improvement opportunities for detection rules, enhance procedures and train analysts.

The CSOC is staffed 24x7x365 globally with varying shifts across multiple geographic locations. As a member of the CSOC Triage team in Singapore, you are the first line of cyber defense and thus have an extremely important role in the overall security posture of Bloomberg. Your skills & experience will be tested regularly and you will be empowered to make the right decisions in a variety of unique situations.

  • Remain up-to-date with cyber security threats and trends
  • Deliver on relevant cyber security metrics and measurements for the role and area of responsibility
  • Collaborate directly with colleagues across the firm to resolve security matters while furthering the program’s brand through your constructive and thoughtful approach
  • Respond to varying seniority levels of employees and contractors throughout Bloomberg, to address cyber security concerns
  • Ensure appropriate coverage for the assigned shift and provide ample awareness to changes to commitments

What’s it like to work here?

We work hard. We are ambitious and set ourselves tough business goals. We are a meritocracy, where everyone has a voice - not a job title. Working with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with is more important than titles or position. Things move fast, and we want people who will enjoy working in this environment and feed off the energy. That being said, it is not all about work. Giving back is one of our core values, and there are many ways to get involved in philanthropic initiatives, from helping local school kids with their reading, to helping clean up local parks and waterways.
