F-Secure is a world-renowned cyber security company with a diverse portfolio of products and services, from award-winning endpoint protection solutions and consumer security products, all the way to world-class cyber security consulting services and managed detection and response services. Put simply, we protect both private citizens, and the critical businesses and governments that they depend upon, from cyber threats.
F-Secure Countercept is our managed detection and response (MDR) service. Our mission is to protect our clients from advanced, targeted cyber-attacks. We do this by having a world-class team of threat hunters, incident responders and researchers. We do this by testing ourselves with attacks from our own red teams. We do this by building the best technology we can to support the great people that we have. The end result? We have an exceptional track record of successfully protecting our clients from attacks by both serious organised crime groups and nation state attackers.
One of the coolest things about F-Secure is working with true leaders in the field of cyber-security. We are pioneering in many areas and, for almost any aspect of cyber-security you can think of, you will be able to find someone who is an expert in it. If you are deeply passionate about cyber-security and want to be surrounded by people you can learn from, then you will love it here.
What we need…
We need a security researcher to join our research and intelligence team to help us drive forward innovations that improve our ability to detect and respond to advanced cyber-attacks. We are especially interested in people that can help us drive forward detection and response techniques for cloud-native services in AWS and Azure, not just in the traditional EDR space.
As a security researcher we would like you to:
Drive the capability of Countercept forward (both the team and product capabilities) by conducting novel research and identifying techniques to enhance detection and response
Promote Countercept’s capabilities to our clients and the industry through the research that you conduct
In order to achieve these goals, your role will likely involve activities such as the following:
Conduct and manage both short-term and long-term research projects, which may include:
Detailed knowledge of offensive techniques used across the entire cyber kill chain
x86/x64 reverse engineering techniques
Strong coding skills in for development of proof-of-concept offensive and defensive prototypes e.g. C/C++, C#, Powershell, Python
Experience using machine learning techniques to solve real-world problems
Familiarity with common techniques used by malware and attack frameworks to obfuscate themselves and otherwise avoid detection
Experience using threat hunting techniques to detect targeted attacks
Familiarity with common AWS and Azure services and security issues facing them
