The successful candidate will work within the ‘MDR Business Unit of F-secure, with a group of established threat hunters, focused on carrying out, supporting and investigations of day to day incidents detected by the F-Secure Countercept Managed Detection and Response service for ourcustomers and performing research to continuously improve its capability. If any of the following resonates with you, this could be the role for you:
What we need…
The Countercept platform is a dynamic and rapidly evolving product, which is heavily research led. The ideal candidate would be able to contribute to enhancing the capability of the service, whether through direct development, research activities or media opportunities.
The ideal candidate should also have solid experience in both offensive and defensive security areas, either penetration testing, incident response or ideally a mixture of both.
The role will also involve client facing functions, including investigative reporting, breach assistance and general client technical account management.
The candidate should be highly motivated, eager to learn and not afraid to get stuck-in, being able to work autonomously as well as part of a team is essential. The ability to effectively triage and prioritise rapidly evolving incidents, utilising a team of threat hunters and IR practitioners to support, is crucial.
The Countercept service monitors target networks 24/7, 365 however work is distributed between F-Secure's UK, Poland and Singapore offices. As such, hunters are expected to work on a rotational basis, including weekends but would not work night shifts.
Being research-led is a key part of how our service and capability develops. As such, you will be given at least 25% of your time dedicated towards research. This time can be spent on a wide range of activities that progress our capability and outputs such as blogs, white papers and conference talks are encouraged!
Main responsibilities include:
Who we think will be a great fit…
Who we are…
F-Secure Countercept is a managed detection and response (MDR) service designed to counter Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) from state sponsored and sophisticated criminal groups; it detects and responds to compromise and attempted compromise across our clients’ IT estates.
Our philosophy is focused on changing the mindset of the industry, moving away from SOCs filled with alert-fatigued analysts waiting for their SIEM to flag yet another false-positive and moving towards offensively trained, proactive threat hunters, who understand the attacker mindset and can root out even the most sophisticated adversaries across both the network and the endpoint.
