Cyber Threat Analyst, Mid
Are you looking for an opportunity to investigate the most pressing cyber events impacting national security and everyday victims? Are you driven by dismantling a cyber actor’s ability to harm victim systems? As a cyber threat intel analyst, you know that quality, risk-based threat intel mapped to a tactical behavior is the key to successfully detecting, deterring, and investigating malicious activity. This is your chance to take on the adversary’s perspective, identify their motivations, and recommend ways to harden systems, reduce their attack surface, and thwart malicious actors.
On our team, you’ll be trusted to collect, document, assess and analyze raw cyber threat information using tools and technologies like FireEye, LookingGlass, MITRE Attack Framework, Linux, UNIX, and tcpdump to enrich intelligence. You’ll conduct strategic assessments on systems and networks, and provide tactical analyses and influential recommendations for network operation. You’ll be the key to discovering and correlating timely threat intel, deciphering what represents a real risk, and playing an active role in cyber investigations and intelligence dissemination to inform policymakers, cyber operators, and mission area leadership.
Cyber threats are evolving and Booz Allen is committed to creating an environment where you not only keep pace with the industry but propel it forward so we can stay ahead of threat actors. With access to academic programs, certifications, mentorship, and opportunities to use expert tradecraft, we’ll continuously invest in you so you can create the career you want as you grow. Booz Allen is your cyber career destination.
