So it wasn't quite what was described to me but not horribly different. The job title is Information Security Analyst but the department I am working in is Systems Assurance. Basically we are supposed to evaluate the different systems and make sure they comply with the requirements of NIST 800-53 and ISO 27000 series. I was reading over some of the documentation which seems relatively straightforward.
The guy next to me has been there about 2 months and is already pretty jaded but by his telling he is an old time security pro, being a new time security amateur I think I can hold out for 3 months :-)
Seems like we will get to access a number of the SecOps guys tools. QRadar is the one I hadn't heard of. SolarWinds Network Monitor, which we evaluated at BPA nd decided we preferred Cisco Prime. A few others that we used at other jobs.
I am trying very hard to not walk in and try and be a know it all so if I have an anuerysm sometime in the next couple weeks you will know why.
