·         Escalating impactful security incidents and providing investigative support to other Security Operations teams, such as Incident Management and Forensics Response teams


·         Work with Business application and infrastructure owners to expand the scope of coverage of the security monitoring service based on business use cases or changes in threat landscape.


·         Provide feedback to security control owners to help tune systems based on the results of triage and investigations.


·         Improving the service level for security operations and monitoring. Creating and maintaining system documentation for security event processing.


·         Developing use cases to automate and streamline repeatable events

Bachelor's degree in computer science or a related discipline, or equivalent work experience required, advanced degree preferred, 8-10 years of experience in information security or related technology experience required, experience in the securities or financial services industry is a plus.
