Security Specialist - Remote - French

Location Toronto, United States
Posted 17-March-2021
Description

Remote across Canada
12 Months + Contract
Bilingual (French/English)

Ideally we are looking for someone who is well organized, has cyber security knowledge but does not need to have a university degree
Requis:
Work with Incident Response teams to improve cyber defense capability;
Familiarity with vulnerability assessment tools;
Responding to virus, malware, spam outbreaks as needed;
Ability to convey security risks in a concise and clear manner;
Familiar with a complex IT environment;
Ability to adapt to emergency situations,, while maintaining confidentiality, and a professional image;
Must possess strong logical, critical thinking and problem solving skills;


We need this temporary resource because UTC introduced a new vulnerability detection tool and until we have a better way to manage the newly found vulnerabilities, we need some help consuming all of this data.

The contractors job would simply be to work with our team to chase down vulnerability remediation once we have identified the assets which are vulnerable.

So basically he or she would contact the IT person responsible for the asset with a vulnerability, help them understand what the vulnerability is and track the vulnerability to completion.
