Posting Summary            

The Information Security/Identity Management Analysts conduct analyses of operational data and act upon those analyses in support of the Information Security Office’s mission to identify and remediate threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information in the University of Vermont’s information ecosystem while also providing the full range of Identity and Account Management services offered by Enterprise Technology Services. This includes administering the digital identities granted to University-affiliated individuals, authorizing them for use of services, and handling policy violations and abuse complaints. These analysts participate in UVM’s Cybersecurity Incident Response Team (CSIRT), collaborate to provide functional supervision to student employees operating in supporting roles, work closely with other Information Security Office staff, and report to the Director of Information Security.


The IS/IMAs must develop and leverage a deep understanding of UVM’s information ecosystem in order to identify intrusion, exfiltration, and other threats to information security using ethical, repeatable, defensible methods. These analysts must exercise discretion and judgment in handling exceptions to account management automation while maintaining the security of University information, protecting individuals’ privacy, and educating constituents. Given the sensitivity of the information and access required to dispatch their duties, the incumbents must acknowledge and faithfully execute a duty to maintain strict confidentiality.
