What You'll Do
The System Security Expert will be responsible for providing state-of-the-art attacks data (malware strategies, vulnerabilities, attack patterns) and for supporting the Stealthwatch team in their effort to enhance their advanced threat detection and mediation capabilities.

Working only on real use-cases, the System Security Expert first responsibility is to train and feed the Machine Learning experts with realistic data. Then, his role is to assess the detection capabilities and to provide either typical exploits or concrete examples of malicious behaviours that our customers will need to be protected from.  

Role & Responsibilities:

  • Engage with machine learning experts to specify security threats and transfer the appropriate knowledge
  • Translate corresponding business requirements into concrete examples (survey, sandbox, anomaly overlays)
  • Prototype attacks or exploit simulations/reproductions to challenge the machine learning algorithms
  • Engage with the product owners to explicit security constraints and refine the requirements to meet customer satisfaction
  • Contribute to product development scoping to identify risks and opportunities

Who You'll Work With
The Stealthwatch group is providing our customers with a great family of products enhancing visibility into advanced threats by identifying suspicious patterns of traffic in a Cisco network. Within this group, the Stealthwatch Leaning Networks (SLN) team is a pretty unique gathering of Cisco best-of-class networking engineers and top machine learning experts. This very innovative group (owning dozens of patents) has developed a hyper-distributed analytics product that inspects the network traffic and applies unsupervised machine learning algorithms to perform a behavioral analysis. The SLN team core is made of high-tech passion and the pursuit of customer satisfactions in one of the most technical industry.

Who You Are
The System Security Expert must have a wide security culture as well as a deep technical understanding of the underlying element of these threats. The System Security Expert must have an outstanding communication skill in order to be able to train and lead the machine learning experts toward the next security challenges. The System Security Expert is expected to be driven by our customer satisfaction.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience analysing and assessing risk, developing secure network and/or identifying vulnerabilities
  • 3+ years of experience developing with script-based language (python, shell)
  • 2+ years of experience working with the Linux OS
  • Experience in working on machine learning products is a plus

Desired Skills

  • Master Degree or Ph.D. in Cyber Security, Computer Science or Network Engineering
  • Solid background on security threats (recent patterns, vulnerabilities, exploits)
  •  Good knowledge on Network Security (VPN, firewall, IPS/IDS)
  • Proficient in programming (simulating malware behavior and malicious activities)
  • Experience working in socket programming is a plus
