As a well-rounded technologist you will partner with the operations, defense, research, and hunting functions of the Cyber Threat team to provide world-class incident response to active threats in Macquarie’s digital environment.  Coordinating with operations and business teams around the globe, you will provide direction, intelligence, and support during active security events.  Communications in the form of real-time situational updates, threat advisories, leadership summaries, and more are a vital part of the team’s interaction with our partners and your combination of verbal and written communication skills will keep everyone engaged and focused.
