Senior Cybersecurity Administrator (LAW FIRM)

Newark, NJ, United States
  • Employment Type: Direct Hire

Our client, a global law firm with dozens of domestic offices, is seeking a Cybersecurity Administrator (Senior Analyst) who will be responsible for hands-on intervention and remediation of most of the firm's security challenges for over 1,600 users.

Knowledge of security best practices across multiple platforms, such as Microsoft Windows, VMWare, and Cisco IOS is required. The right fit will likely be a jack-of-all trades, and perhaps a master of none—that's ok!
