  • Determine correct response activities for each security event
  • Document your investigations 
  • Maintain awareness of real-world cyber security threats and support cyber intelligence capabilities
  • Identify trends in events and incidents and make recommendations to improve risk posture
  • Help ensure documentation is up to date to reflect current processes and procedures 

It’s more than protecting systems and data, it’s protecting people. Our Information Security team know that security is a top priority for our business, our partners and our customers. Today, as cyber-attacks increase and compliance is more rigorously enforced, we look to them to stay ahead of what’s next and to protect our business and our future.  So, if you are dedicated to the latest technology and motivating others, secure your career here.
