Office 365 & Azure Cyber Threat Hunter, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an active role in detecting advanced cyber threats to cloud systems? 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 CND/CNO 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. Work with our team of cyber security experts to find the adversary in the SEIM’s blind spot and advise clients on ways to close the gaps and harden their network. 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. Let’s outsmart the adversary and protect our military's cloud communications systems.

Empower change with us.
