Incident Response and Digital Forensics Analyst 

Field Effect is looking for cyber security analysts for our incident response and digital forensics team. 

Why Field Effect? 

Field Effect is a rapidly growing company with an increasingly distributed global workforce that provides world-class managed cyber security solutions for businesses of all sizes. The company was founded by the brightest talents in cyber security, with a mission to remove the complexity of securing endpoints and networks by delivering monitoring and threat protection services that are easy to use and provide actionable insights. 

Incident Response Team 

Field Effect is often called on to respond to live incidents and perform digital forensics on past incidents. We are always looking to grow our team of analysts that handle evolving situations across a range of different IT environments and perform the detective work to piece through digital forensics data to uncover what really happened. Analysts on the team help organizations respond to and recover from incidents. They also assess the extent of an incident, recommend remediations to help avoid future incidents, and potentially help recover lost data. 

The Incident Response team faces interesting challenges that require a blend of technical expertise with the ability to distill information and communicate effectively. 

In this role, an analyst can leverage their expertise to directly help a range of clients. Analysts continually grow and learn through exposure to widely diverse and varied IT infrastructures. 

Incident response includes leveraging the Covalence platform and various forensics tools and platforms to perform disk, memory, and malware analysis. It can be very rewarding to help organizations respond to and recover from cyber attacks and know that you are making a difference.
