Job Description

Role: SIEM  Analyst
Duration: 06 months (potential for extension)
Location: 100% Remote

4800 Deerwood Campus Parkway, Building 100, Jacksonville, Florida, United States, 32246


Notes from Hiring Manager:
SIEM (Security Information and Event Management).
Used to develop alerting for incident response, perform investigations, manage IT infrastructure to identify issues, centralized logging, correlation alerts, analytics, and more...

SIEM products are made by a variety of different vendors. Qradar (IBM), Splunk, Microsoft Sentinel, Arcsight, Security Onion, etc. Would like them to have experience developing rules in more than one SIEM. More than one technology.
Deep skills in one would be fine, but exposure to more than one would be useful.

For most people, working in a security operations Center (SIEM) or using it for incident response isn't deep enough. We need skills building the alerts - which could also be threat hunting type skills. Strategic thinkers over tactical.
