Sr Incident Containment Analyst


Atlanta, GA

9 month contract

Pay: up to $65/hr

Job Details:

The Senior Incident Containment Analyst works to support “damage control” and is responsible for developing creative containment strategies across corporate, geographic, and digital boundaries. This role must have significant knowledge of network design, network architecture, enterprise infrastructures, and cloud security.

The Senior Incident Containment Analyst develops strategies for short-term and long-term containment of potential cyber incidents. This role allows the Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) to move from short-term actions (ex: blocking IPs, disabling accounts, etc.) to advising on long-term actions like network segmentation, improved visibility, and targeted technology deployments.

This role is expected to study the network, document network ingress/egress points, inventory the existing technology controls, and map them to a series of containment strategies. Additionally, the selected individual will work closely with networking, disaster recovery, architecture, engineering, and other teams. This high level of engagement with other business units requires strong soft skills like communication and ability to lead technical meetings. The ability to create detailed documents, playbooks, and project plans that drive implementation efforts will be important in this role. Conducting and developing tabletop exercises will be an important part of the candidate’s job.

Knowledge of software-defined networking and software engineering is desirable for this role, particularly experience integrating internally hosted appliances with cloud services via APIs or other mechanisms.
