  • Guarantee the proper gathering, safeguarding, and maintenance of digital evidence's chain of custody during investigative procedures.

  • Maintain transparent interaction with clients throughout incident response operations, acting as a reliable advisor during the entire process.

  • Create comprehensive incident reports that encompass discoveries, recommendations, and strategies for resolving issues, tailored for both technical and non-technical audiences.

  • Stay updated with the latest threat intelligence and emerging trends to provide timely advice and suggestions to clients.

  • Work collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams, including security analysts and engineers, to enhance incident response procedures and capabilities.


About you:

  • At least 2 years of experience in incident response, digital forensics, or a closely related domain.

  • Highly valued industry certifications such as GCFE, GCFA, GCIH, or CISSP.
