Investigative Analyst: Early Warning & Threat Prevention

Doing business or providing essential public services in the 21st century requires navigation through numerous layers of digital, infrastructural, financial, and political domains merging and intercepting one with another across hundreds of international jurisdictions. 

In this chaotic environment, the ability to identify, assess, and address threats to prevent fatal damages becomes imperative.

We are offering an exciting opportunity to begin/advance your career in cybersecurity and business intelligence as an Investigative Analyst on our Security Team. In this role, you will assist in analyzing and assessing risks to corporate enterprises and public agencies helping our customers and Law Enforcement partners to ensure that any threat emerging in the most well-concealed underground lacunes will be exposed, reported, and disrupted. 

We are looking for critical thinkers with advanced knowledge of today’s business, market, and financial environment who are willing to independently research complex corporate risk landscapes and convince decision-makers to take necessary action. You will be uniquely positioned to investigate how cyber threats impact different industries, sectors of the economy, or services, and provide critical analysis to further advance cyber prevention.

Within the Early Warning & Threat Prevention role focus, we are seeking analysts who can combine both investigative research and intelligence delivery duties. This implies the ability to balance analysis and product development. A successful candidate will be able to develop advanced financial and business risk models, create detailed threat scoring, and offer an accurate analytical prognosis for an incident’s potential impact. At the same, we are looking for candidates with an ability to convey these research findings into convincing and readable reporting that will encourage decision-makers to properly address potential threats and maximize the benefits of early-warning and proactive measures.
