Cyber Hunt and Forensics Analyst

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an active role in detecting advanced cyber threats to critical infrastructure? Instead of letting the attackers come to us, let’s go find them. Cyber threats are evolving, and perimeter security and automated protection aren’t enough—it’s time to go threat hunting.

We’re looking for a cyber hunt and forensics analyst 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. With your technical expertise, you’ll build creative 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. This position requires the employee to work at one of the Booz Allen offices or client sites within the U.S. to include the District of Columbia.

Empower change with us.
