This role will primarily focus on advising on security technical architecture as well as performing internal and external oriented security assessments and incident response for our customers.  These assessments range from deep technical security assessments, to social engineering, to broad based security posture assessments. From a technical perspective, this will involve the use of both commercial and custom built tools.  The types of tools include Vulnerability Scanners, Penetration kits (metasploit, backtrack, kali, SET, etc), IDS/IPS, Firewall, DLP and wireless technology, as well as Linux and Windows core tools and Virtualization platforms.  Additionally, this role will work with the Information Security Officer to develop additional assessment capabilities.
The secondary aspect of this role will be in the area of security incident response.  While limited, typically this comes about when an assessment we are doing indicates compromise, or a customer engages us based on suspicious activity.  Many times this involve log reviews, malware analysis, or forensic acquisition of evidence so it can be analyzed by someone else at a later date.
