As cyber-crime continues to threaten businesses large and small, hackers are improving their tactics, techniques and procedures faster than corporate security teams can keep up. Increasingly organized and collaborative, their methods grow more sophisticated each year. When our clients don’t have the knowledge or resources to take-on the threat of a cyber-attack, they look to us for help.
Our Forensic Technology and Discovery Services (FTDS) team is experiencing rapid growth, and as a Cyber Senior you’ll be a key part of that growth. Working with companies across all industries, you’ll develop your career by communicating creative solutions for the client’s specific needs. It’s all about listening to and understanding our clients to give them a truly exceptional experience in a field where there really are no off-the-shelf recommendations.
Your key responsibilities
The nature of this role means no two projects will be the same. You’re likely to balance your time between directly liaising with our clients to understand their situation and create an appropriate response plan. It’s all about using your investigative savvy to creatively assess and resolve our clients’ needs from the front lines. That means thinking differently about the type of security breach, identifying vulnerabilities, and hardening the IT environment to complicate an attacker’s efforts to get back in.
Skills and attributes for success
Managing the key components of a portfolio of Forensic Technology and Discovery Services projects, including strategy, planning and execution
Developing long-term relationships across a network of existing and potential clients, understanding their businesses to provide tailored insights
Constantly developing your understanding of our clients’ industries, identifying trends, risks and opportunities for improvement
Using technology to distribute your knowledge of leading-practice and enhance service delivery
Developing your team through constant coaching and feedback, providing challenging goals and guaranteeing your people have the skills, knowledge and opportunities to grow
To qualify for the role you must have
A bachelor’s degree, supported by approximately 3 years relevant work experience
Achieved, or be working towards a professional designation, such as EnCE, ACE, CCE, CCFP, or GIAC
Excellent project management skills and the ability to prioritize when working on multiple engagements
Strong negotiation and influencing skills, and the confidence to communicate complex technical concepts to a wide range of audiences
Ideally, you’ll also have
In-depth understanding of computer forensic principles including intrusion response, network monitoring, reverse engineering and malware analysis
Working knowledge of hardware configuration and network/data communications, software development and scripting, and database technology and database exploitation/forensics
Experience with law enforcement evidence seizure and conducting intelligence analysis
What we look for
We’re interested in passionate leaders, with the intellectual curiosity to actively pursue new knowledge in the rapidly changing world of cyber breach response. Naturally you’ll need a firm technical foundation, as well as the ability to translate complex information into meaningful, actionable insights. But we’re not just looking for strong technical skills – we’re interested in people that have the ability to nurture relations, both internal and external, and are committed to intimately understanding our client’s needs. If you’re looking to become part of a community of advisors where you’ll make a measurable difference across some of the most prestigious businesses around, this role is for you.
