  • Leverage threat intelligence information to investigate and identify potential security related flaws
  • Develop comprehensive reports and metrics for key business stakeholders and leaders
  • Collaborate with business stakeholders on the prioritization and remediation of identified issues
  • Assess, leverage, and incorporate relevant vulnerability and intelligence feeds into processes
  • Leverage automation and tools to reduce human interaction and drive process consistency and repeatability
