At IBM, work is more than a job - it's a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.

Your Role and Responsibilities


The Incident Response role can be based in the Netherlands, Austria, Ireland or Italy. EU citizenship is required for both roles.


The Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) manages security incidents, leads investigations, and remediates threats to systems and data. The cybersecurity specialist works in Incident Response and/or Digital Forensics.

As incident responder, you handle security incidents from intake through triage, protection and remediation. You communicate effectively with business and technical teams across the company, including executive management, as well as corporate functions. You conduct meetings with stakeholders to facilitate the exchange of information, agree on and track the completion of actions, and document the findings and lessons learned.

As forensic analyst, you conduct the technical analysis for security incidents (for example, unauthorized access, malware/ransomware, data loss, advanced persistent threats). You apply forensically sound methods for evidence handling and managing the chain of custody. You combine data from multiple sources, including system images, event logs, digital media and threat intelligence, to investigate threats, establish incident timelines, and document the findings in detailed, evidence based technical reports.

Working with global teams across the company, you ensure that security incidents are handled in a timely and professional manner and contribute to the ongoing improvement of IBM’s overall IT security posture.
