Have you ever wondered about the dangers lurking in the shadows of the Internet?
We are looking for curious individuals who have an inner desire to protect others from being exploited on the Internet.
We are hiring a Junior InfoSec Intern for our team. This is a role suited for those who have an interest and skills in Information Security and are looking for work experience in the field.
This role works closely with the Threat Research team to help identify the various methods of cyber criminals. You will be collecting and analyzing data, finding patterns and anomalies to help uncover the TTPs of these actors. A logical mind is a must so that these processes can be replicated and automated. As this is an entry level position, many fundamental topics will be covered, starting the path to become a true Blue Team member.
The ideal candidate is someone who can effectively communicate verbally and in writing. A logical mind, patience, and a thirst for knowledge are invaluable in the field of Information Security. You are the kind of person that enjoys the grind of repetition, sharpening your efficiency, and spending long hours analyzing data looking for anomalies. Security requires attention to detail and pattern recognition skills in order to produce quality work. Applicants must have good computer skills (ability to self search, typing speed, and general Internet savviness). Basic programming skills are an asset, but applicants should plan to learn if they are not doing so already.
