As cyber-crime continues to threaten businesses large and small, hackers are improving their tactics, techniques and procedures faster than corporate security teams can keep up. Increasingly organized and collaborative, their methods grow more sophisticated each year. Our clients continually look to EY for our knowledge and resources to assist with their cyber risks or events.
Our Forensic and Integrity Services (Forensics) team is experiencing rapid growth, and as a Forensic Technology Senior you’ll be a key part of that growth. This opportunity is for team oriented individuals who want to continually learn, research new technologies or attack patterns and develop new skills to drive innovation as part of a continually evolving service offering.
Your key responsibilities
The nature of this role means no two projects will be the same. You’re likely to balance your time between directly liaising with our clients to understand their situation and create an appropriate response plan. This will include investigating what happened and helping the client to determine if the attacker is potentially still in their environment or if their systems are being misused. You will be helping clients assess and resolve cyber events from the front lines and managing multiple teams on an ongoing basis for multiple clients at a time. That means thinking differently about the type of security breach, identifying vulnerabilities, and hardening the IT environment to complicate an attacker’s efforts to get back in.
