Description:

Cyber threats are rising in both volume and sophistication every day. Building next generation capabilities for threat detection and response is not feasible for many organizations. However, Kivu’s Managed Security Services are designed to help bridge this gap by delivering advanced detection and response as a service, thereby removing the complexity and cost of building an in-house next generation security operation.

 

For security analysts it means working in an organization to leverage existing toolsets that provide automation and orchestration in a DevSecOps environment to keep the role exciting and challenging. The Senior Threat Analyst will provide intrusion/incident monitoring and detection utilizing customer provided data sources, audit and monitoring tools at both the government and enterprise level. The Threat Analyst will work closely with the Incident Response, SOC Engineering, and Customer Experience teams to service Kivu Clients.
