Work you'll do

You will be monitoring and analyzing security logs from multiple sources, such as DLP, IDS/IPS, Antivirus, firewalls, system logs and others, then escalating any relevant security issues to the appropriate areas. Additionally, you will be responsible for providing the appropriate teams with guidance on security issues that need to be remediated. You must have a strong awareness of current and developing security threats and technologies to support research and recommendations. You will work closely with management, other team members, development teams, business analysts, and practitioners to ensure data protection for systems used by all areas of the organization.

  • Develop custom content for the SIEM platform. This would include creating, publishing, and communicating the availability of dashboards that will be monitored by the Security Operations Center.

  • Work jointly with Infrastructure and IRC teams to periodically review existing security device architecture and recommend potential updates or enhancements for group review
  • Monitor security blogs, articles, reports, as well as other security intelligence sources to keep up-to-date on the latest security threats and trends. Report significant threats to Cyber Defense leadership.
