Key Skills are:

  • Strong knowledge of Windows System Internals, Defender, Active Directory’s role within the enterprise

  • Ability to identify patterns and trends in events, and to extract useful indicators of compromise from that data.

  • Previous host-based investigative or analysis work is strongly beneficial.

  • Excellent written & communication skills.

  • A strongly developed interest in systems security.

  • Relevant areas of certification may include SANS / GIAC, OSCP or similar.
