  • Conduct security tests and identify potential vulnerabilities (OWASP top 10 - XSS, CSRF, SQLi, critical/high and common issues in NVD, etc.) for improvement in security design
  • Triage and validate security vulnerabilities found or reported, and serve as SME, identifying mitigation solutions
  • Communicate issues to the application owners, provide meaningful remediation recommendations, and validate that they have been resolved
  • Advocate security culture and mentor team members on best practices to develop the next generation of technical security leaders

  • Experience implementing/utilizing Federal, Industry and Open Source Security Guidance and Secure Coding Practices (OWASP, Critical Security Controls, Cloud Security Alliance, CERT, SANS, SafeCode, and CWE Top 25)
