Job Description

Join Context (as part of Accenture Security UK) and help transform leading organisations and communities around the world. The sheer scale of our capabilities and client engagements and the way we collaborate, operate and deliver value provides an unparalleled opportunity to grow and advance.
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence function is rapidly growing, and we are hiring threat intelligence analysts to work with our diverse customer base. At Accenture Security, you will be part of a specialised team delivering threat intelligence services to clients with highly complex and challenging environments around the world. You will work in a fast paced and highly collaborative environment, working closely with our Incident Response, Red Team and Managed Security Services capabilities.
As a strategic threat intelligence analyst, you will assess real-world events and geopolitics and consider how these align with and motivate events in the cyber threat landscape. You will evaluate patterns in threat actor tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and seek to understand their motivations, whether it is to reap the greatest financial reward, in response to real-world events, or collecting data to satisfy intelligence requirements.
Our threat assessments evaluate the threats facing an organisation, considering which threat actors are active in the relevant sector or region; what TTPs the threat actors display; their motivations and objectives; and how they would target the client’s organisation. Through this, you will equip clients with the knowledge to make informed strategic business decisions, focus their cyber security strategy, and develop proactive approaches to mitigation and detection.
