At Quorum Cyber we believe in helping good people win. Founded in Edinburgh in 2016, we are growing a team of passionate people providing professional and managed cyber security services to organisations worldwide.

We currently have an opportunity for an exceptional individual to join our professional services team, focusing on cyber security incident response and management.

Job Purpose

The purpose of the role is to help customers effectively respond to and manage cyber-security incidents, ranging from compromise assessments, to live incident response and digital forensics.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong technical background, experience in incident response and a passion for defending Customers against cyber-attacks.

You will be able to guide a client through a structured process – triage, containment, eradication and recovery. If provided with forensic data such as disk images, memory images and network logs, the successful candidate should be able to pull the pieces of the puzzle together, understand the extent of an attack, identify malware artefacts, source of infection, and articulate the actions taken by threat actors on a clear timeline of events.

In addition to responding to incidents, you will help our clients build or strengthen their internal incident response capabilities, from assessing their current incident response maturity to assisting them to develop processes and tools, authoring runbooks/playbooks, and wargaming cyber-scenario exercises.

Finally the role will also include the ability to work with and mentor junior team members, as you develop and grow the capability internally in Quorum Cyber, with an opportunity to quickly grow into Team Leadership and Management positions.
