  • Assist in the evaluation and potential onboarding of new threat intelligence tooling 
  • Perform the research and cross-team collaboration required to respond to requests for information from various customers/stakeholders

    • Propensity for making analytical risk-based decisions and recommendations 
    • Ability to convey complex information in a clear and concise manner both verbally and in written form 
    • Understanding of threat landscape, threat actors, and the internal and external factors that impact organizational security
