  • Stay current with and remain knowledgeable about new threats. Analyze attacker tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) from security events across a large heterogeneous network of security devices and end-user systems.
  • Participate in threat modeling collaboration with other members of the security team.
  • Leverage automation and orchestration solutions to automate repetitive tasks.
  • Assist with incident response as events are escalated, including triage, remediation and documentation.
  • Aid in threat and vulnerability research across event data collected by systems.
  • Investigate and document events to aid incident responders, managers and other SOC team members on security issues and the emergence of new threats.
  • Work alongside other security team members to hunt for and identify security issues generated from the network, including third-party relationships.
  • Work alongside our Cloud Security and Infrastructure teams to assist in leveraging our Cloud Security tools in an efficient manner.
  • Monitor our Cloud presence and respond to alerts accordingly.
  • Seek opportunities to drive efficiencies.
  • Manage security event investigations, partnering with other departments (e.g., IT) as needed.
  • Evaluate SOC policies and procedures, and recommend updates to management as appropriate.
  • Adhere to service level agreements (SLAs), metrics and business scorecard obligations for ticket handling of security incidents and events.
  • Partner with the security engineering team to improve tool usage and workflow, as well as with the advanced threats and assessment team to mature monitoring and response capabilities.
  • Leverage knowledge in multiple security disciplines, such as Windows, Unix, Linux, data loss prevention (DLP), endpoint controls, databases, wireless security and data networking, to offer solutions for a complex heterogeneous environment.
  • Maintain working knowledge of advanced threat detection as the industry evolves.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.
    -
  • Qualifications:
    3-5 years of information security monitoring and response or related experience.
  • Experience working in a 24x7 operational environment.
  • Experience driving measurable improvement in monitoring and response capabilities at scale.

  • Experience working with SIEM systems, threat intelligence platforms, security automation and orchestration solutions, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), and other network and system monitoring tools.
  • Knowledge of a variety of Internet and network protocols.
  • Track record of acting with integrity, taking pride in work, seeking to excel, being curious and adaptable, and communicating effectively.
