About This Opportunity

The Vulnerability Analyst III will be responsible for optimization of vulnerability management tools as well as assessment, triage, and prioritization of defects identified by those tools. This includes engagement with system and application owners to advise of necessary remediations and analyze potential mitigations and workarounds. Additionally, as part of the overall program, this resource will contribute to data science and orchestration initiatives designed to increase automation and produce meaningful, actionable insights regarding the InComm attack surface.

This position must be well-versed in core application, systems, and network technologies as a basis for understanding the mechanisms and impacts of vulnerabilities afflicting common platforms. Intellectual curiosity for evolving attack and defense techniques is needed to accurately assess the damage potential and ease of exploit for vulnerabilities that reside within the InComm environment.
