Confirm what is known about an intrusion and discover new information using industry standard malware and digital forensic analysis techniques. Examine recovered data for information of relevance to the investigation. You’ll support the development of new detection capability by integrating the results of malware and forensic analysis tasks into new and existing detection use cases in order to prevent future occurrences. You’ll be responsible for maintaining currency as data sources, analysis tools, and techniques evolve to changes in the technical computing environment as well as by mandates from higher echelon organizations.
