  • Develop and maintain comprehensive documentation of security incidents, including incident reports and post–mortem analyses.
  • Stay current with emerging cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities, and industry best practices to continuously enhance our security posture.
  • Participate in security incident response exercises and drills to test and refine our incident response procedures.
  • Collaborate with cross–functional teams to implement security controls and measures to protect against known and emerging threats.
  • Provide guidance and support to junior SOC analysts, sharing knowledge and best practices to build a strong and cohesive team.

Qualifications:

  • Experience in cybersecurity, particularly within a SOC.

  • Hands–on experience with SIEM tools, intrusion detection/prevention systems, and endpoint security technologies.
  • Proficiency in scripting languages such as Python or PowerShell for automation and data analysis.
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to methodically investigate and resolve security incidents.
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to convey technical information effectively to both technical and non–technical audiences.
  • Relevant industry certifications such as CISSP, GIAC, or CompTIA Security+ are a plus.
