  • They use state-of-the-art tools like IDA Pro or Binary Ninja for deep dives
  • They strive to adopt new technologies, software, and workflows to stay on top of things
  • You should have a background in computer science or engineering, either via a university or previous work experience
Technical Skills:
  • You should be fluent in Python, other languages are a plus
  • You should have strong knowledge in at least one area (system internals, protocols, cryptography, adversary techniques, web and binary exploitation, reverse engineering) and interest in general cyber security. You will need to keep developing to stay ahead of the constantly evolving security and compliance needs
  • Understanding and knowledge of common industry cyber security frameworks, standards and methodologies, including; OWASP, ISO2700x series, PCI DSS, GLBA, Global data security and privacy acts, FFIEC guidelines, CIS and NIST standards, is an advantage.
