Security Operations Center Security Specialists will observe, document, and respond or dispatch appropriately to any unusual activity that might jeopardize the security, safety, and/or business operations of the Security Operations Center. The intent is for an alert Security Operations Center Security Specialist to observe and proactively respond to suspicious activity before a breach occurs that may or may not otherwise trigger an alarm.
Monitoring and Response to Security Alarms Associated with the SOC Space - Approximately 5%
Responsible for the continuous and timely monitoring and response or dispatch to all incoming alarms associated with the Springfield Security Operations Center.

Anything out of the ordinary, to include but not limited to incidents, issues, hazards, suspicious circumstances, or violations must be thoroughly and accurately documented via the appropriate reporting system, and any appropriate notifications promptly made. This requires good observation skills, attention to detail, analytical skills, critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, and sound judgment.

Visual Identification and Access Control - As Needed - Less than 5%
Responsible for making visual confirmation of identities of entrants to the Springfield Security Operations Center by visually matching the entrants face to the photo and name on the badge they carry, denying access to individuals not using their own badge or without proper authority and access approvals to enter, unless escorted properly by a valid sponsor.
