  • Coordinate and lead Incident Response taskforces and provide technical expertise, working with different business functions such as IT Operations, HR, Legal, Data Privacy, Corporate Communications and Product Security.
  • Document and track cybersecurity incidents through their entire lifecycle, from initial detection, triage, response to final resolution and improvements.
  • Derive immediate mitigation measures for containment, eradication, and recovery of cybersecurity incident and keep track of its implementation progress during incident response task forces.
  • Consume threat intelligence to detect, triage and remediate malware, threats and adversarial activity.
  • Develop and carry out regular threat hunting (proactive) activities, making sure learnings are properly documented and propagated to neighboring teams and functions.
  • Leverage threat hunting to create and maintain Situational Awareness for related company functions such IT operations, security architects, or service providers.
  • Perform analysis of different log files and data sources to identify adversarial activity and anomalies.
  • Assess newly arising vulnerabilities and Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) to define defensive measures to detect and disrupt adversarial actions. Coordinate with neighboring functions to ensure those measures are turned into actionable changes.
  • Collect forensic artifacts, analyze, reverse engineer, and document findings on malicious payloads so that indicators of compromise and information about threats origin and intents are properly disseminated and acted upon.
  • Use industry standards to produce and disseminate our own Threat Intelligence to our internal counterparts and external partners.
  • Consider business aspects to support an adequate triage and prioritization of cybersecurity incidents, whilst ensuring root-cause are properly clarified. Communicate findings and possible improvement measures in an actionable way.
  • Operate and drive continuous improvement to SOC playbooks to protect company personnel, businesses, and assets.

  • Host/network access control mechanisms (e.g., access control list, capabilities lists).
  • System administration, network, and operating system hardening techniques.
  • Knowledge of network security architecture concepts including topology, protocols, components, and principles (e.g., application of defense-in-depth).
  • Incident categories, incident responses, and timelines for responses.
  • Incident response and handling methodologies.
  • Intrusion detection methodologies and techniques for detecting host and network-based intrusions.
  • Network traffic and packet-level analysis.
  • System and application security threats and vulnerabilities (e.g., buffer overflow, mobile code, cross-site scripting, code and command injections, race conditions, covert channel, replay, return-oriented attacks, malicious code).
