Cyber Threat Hunter, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an active role in detecting advanced cyber activity to our client?  Instead of letting the attackers come to us, let’s go find them. Cyber activity is evolving, and perimeter security and automated protection aren’t enough—it’s time to go find them. We’re looking for specialists who can think like a cyber attacker to figure out how to circumvent security measures.

You’ll use your network defense experience and analytical skills to rapidly prototype and build scripts to create haystacks and sift through the false positives to find patterns and indicators. Guide your team of cyber security experts to find the adversary in the Security Information Event Management (SIEM) blind spot and advise client on ways to close the gaps and harden their network. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build technical solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. This is a chance to think differently about cyber defense, use completely new tools and approaches, and develop the next generation of security analytics.
