As an Application Security Expert, your focus will be to discover, exploit and report customer vulnerabilities and threats you’ve discovered. You will be working from a security lab environment simulating public attack vectors, or work from within the customer datacentre depending on the need. While performing your activities you will – at all times – safeguard the customer (production) environment to avoid any potential business impact and respect customer confidentiality.
The vulnerability and threat landscape within cybersecurity is moving constantly which will require you to further develop yourself and keep track of the latest attack vectors, techniques, and tools.
