Job Description Our job is to be bold at work. It starts with an insatiable curiosity about clients, colleagues, and the future. At Forrester, we believe curiosity powers progress. Forresterites bring a diversity of opinions and the courage of their convictions to collaborate on the ideas and initiatives that change the course of business. As a trusted advisor to the most influential companies in the world, we live at the nexus of what's next. About This Role: The Senior Analyst conducts innovative research and delivers advice through written reports, advisory, client inquiries, webinars, and event speeches. As a part of Forrester's security and risk research team, the Senior Analyst works with a team of analysts who research client initiatives related to all aspects of security architecture and operations, in particular Forrester's Zero Trust Model Of Information Security. This individual's coverage will focus on helping clients develop Zero Trust security architectures and mapping open source and vendor solutions to Zero Trust components. The Senior Analyst also helps clients, particularly in the government, understand US federal requirements for the adoption of Zero Trust, NIST, and other standards. The Senior Analyst serves security and risk professionals as well as Forrester clients in other roles, including CIOs, CTOs, enterprise architecture professionals, and infrastructure and operations professionals. Candidates should have a strong understanding of the most important security and risk trends as well as their business and technology implications. Knowledge of how these issues vary by industry - particularly government - is a plus. They should have an appetite for conducting and writing research, be curious about new and emerging trends, and be comfortable guiding executives in their adoption of best practices. Job Description: The Senior Analyst works as part of a small high-performance team and collaborates with others in all aspects of the job.

Customize this research for clients in government and public sectors. * Help define the future of information security and risk management, including how these roles can work with other key business functions and support organizational success. * Complete eight research projects per year that convey new security and risk ideas in a rich business context. The deliverables from these research projects typically: 1) introduce new thinking about successful business and technology strategies and best practices; 2) present organizational and technology implementation plans; 3) compare new technologies or services (e.g., via a Forrester Wave); or 4) predict emerging technologies, trends, and opportunities. * Consult with clients to apply Forrester's research in the context of their specific environment and help solve their problems through inquiry and advisory. * Present at Forrester-sponsored and industry events and deliver client webinars. * Establish an industry presence as an influential speaker and thinker and build relationships with senior security and risk professionals, the technology vendors that serve them, and the journalists who cover the sector. * Participate in vendor briefings and field press inquiries. Job Requirements: * BA/BS degree or equivalent work or military experience. * Proven experience in a security and risk role; candidates typically have formulated strategy or provided consultative advice to senior security professionals. * Deep intellectual curiosity about the effect of technology on the organization's mission and goals; solid business instincts; a practical understanding of how security and risk professionals operate and the challenges they face; a creative view of markets, technologies, and attitudes; and a fascination with the future. * Superior listening, critical thinking, and writing skills, as well as memorable presentation skills. Senior analysts are expected to take complex, disparate ideas and distill them into simple, provocative concepts - and be willing to take a stand on vendors and outcomes. * The ability to travel more than 25% of the time.
