  • Coordinating with Senior Analysts and/or Duty Manager for high priority incidents.

  • Associate's degree or two or more years of work experience.
  • Three or more years of relevant work experience.
  • Experience with security incident monitoring and threat investigations.
  • Willingness to work shifts that cover days and nights as well and may include weekends.
  • Must be able to pass an extensive background investigation as a condition of employment.
Even better if you have one or more of the following:
  • Bachelor's degree.
  • SANS or other Security industry certifications such as GCIA, GCIH, GREM, or GPEN ITIL Foundations training / certification.
  • Hands-on experience with SIEM platforms, such as Security Analytics, Splunk, or ArcSight, Firewalls, Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems, Proxies, Web Applications, and/or Penetration Testing.
  • Hands-on experience implementing Tenable Nessus Security Center, creating customer scans and reviewing findings.
  • Must be familiar with using a network management system like Whatsup Gold or Nagios to monitor network devices and conduct incident response as needed to rectify issues.
  • Strong network, TCP/IP and endpoint skills.
  • Linux and scripting experience.
  • Understanding of databases and windows processes.
  • Solid understanding of attack vectors and how systems are compromised.
  • Capability to effectively multi-task, prioritize work, and handle competing interests.
  • Experience performing QA functions.
