The Information security analyst monitors, investigates, responds and improves alerting for security-related events and incidents.  The security team strives to reduce response times for security incidents by improving detective controls by modeling threat actor activity.  This role will be on the front line in the incident response process and will be responsible for identification and escalation of security incidents.

The security team at GA is made up of an information security analyst (you), security engineering and the VP of Technology. You will report directly to the VP of Technology. Our current technology stacks include Heroku and AWS, ElasticStack (ELK),  Behavioral endpoint EDR, and an industry-leading IDS/IPS.  Your day to day activities will include looking at alerts and logs daily to triage and prioritize alerts.  It would be beneficial if you held any of the following industry certifications: Security+, CEH, SSCP/CISSP (Not required)
