Job description

Role description and tasks

As the main threat modeler within the security group, your job is two-fold.

The service is aimed at delivering briefing packages that help the requestor understand the identified cyber security threats relevant to their request and scope. These requests can be ad-hoc when triggered by an (pending) event (e.g. Russia-Ukraine war) or structural when part of a standardized process (e.g. feeding Risks into the ISMS). The aim of this service and thus the content of these briefing packages is mostly at Strategic and Tactical level.

Secondly, you are heavily involved in continuous improvement of the Threat Hunting service. You contribute to, advice on, and in many cases write up (improved) SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and runbooks for the teams involved in operational threat hunting. In case of incidents (after initial triage and dispatch) , you may be referred to and contribute to the actual threat hunting as the SME supporting the 2nd and 3rd line responders. The aim of these activities are very Operational, using your Tactical SME know-how.

Position in the team

You support the Corporate security team as follows:

  • As part of the ISO:27001 based ISMS-PDCA cycle, you provide SME insights into our corporate risk profile and help populate the risk register;
  • Your insights in the TTPs of malicious and / or criminal hacker groups can be called upon when auditing existing security controls and identifying improvements;
  • You may be called upon for SME advice as part of security consultancy services provided in the CCBs.

  • You periodically feed relevant information briefings into the various security SME / champion groups chaired by members of the solution security team;
  • To better understand risks that are specific to a customer, site, project or service, your expert advice may be called upon as part of the security consultancy services provided in the Business Units.
