  • Review new project design documentation and report any design weaknesses from a security perspective

Who You Are

  • You are a skilled security expert, who can build tools and processes to improve threat hunting and threat intelligence.
  • You use the tools at your disposal to detect, identify and troubleshoot the security events that are generated.
  • You are confident in liaising with other teams and executives in helping to mitigate attacks
  • You are a self-starter with a positive attitude and have the ability to work independently

  • You have an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of the threat landscape and the techniques to defend against them – including tactics, techniques, and procedures.
  • You have high ethical standards, personal integrity, and the ability to professionally handle confidential matters.

Good-To-Have Skills
