Currently working with a multinational TMT as they continue to evolve their internal GSOC capability and develop their internal threat hunting and response capabilities. They are looking for someone who can proactively hunt for unknown threats, illuminating malicious activities which had previously gone undetected, whilst also acting as a technical escalation point for the most complex investigations from the SOC.

  • Development and implementation of advanced analysis and search capability to identify potentially sophisticated APT and insider threat activities.
  • Researching new and existing threat actors and associated tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) and their impact to the business.
  • Work closely with the security/content engineering teams to develop use-cases and improve overall efficiency of the Cyber Threat Hunting processes.

Required Skills & Experience

  • A 'purple team' mindset, specialising in blue/red teaming with a natural curiosity as to how the other side operates.
  • Strong knowledge of the development and deployment of advanced security monitoring techniques and the creation of new cyber threat hunting use cases.
  • Previous experience working in a dedicated Cyber Threat Hunting team or advanced SOC/CSIRT capability.
