Client Details

Creating some of the most advanced technology in the world today my client is experiencing global growth both in sales and in manufacturing footprint.
Due to the sensitive nature of the IP, and the positioning of Australia in the APAC region, the APAC security function is being centred in Melbourne.

  • Analyse security data from multiple sources across several platforms to identify threats
  • Keep abreast of the latest attacker techniques and approaches
  • Employ the latest data analytics tools and techniques to help detect malicious activity
  • Work closely with operations and engineering teams to define threat detection signals, deploy new cutting-edge tools, and improve response capabilities
  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Electrical engineering, or a similar highly technical field
  • A deep hands on knowledge of intrusion detection, incident response, application security, malware analysis and forensics
  • Experience in large scale analysis of log data using industry leading tools such as Splunk
  • Strong network traffic monitoring experience
  • Proficiency in at least one development language (Python, C, etc)
  • Experience detecting large scale attacks within a global enterprise environment
