Principal Industrial Incident Responder - Europe


May 02

Our mission at Dragos is to protect the world’s most critical infrastructure from adversaries who wish to do it harm. We help defend industrial organizations that provide us with the tenets of modern civilization: running water, functioning electricity, and safe industrial working environments.

We are practitioners who have lived through and solved real security challenges. Our team members have responded to incidents including the Ukraine 2015 power grid attack, analyzed the CRASHOVERRIDE malware responsible for the Ukraine 2016 electric grid attack, analyzed the TRISIS malware responsible for the petrochemical facility attack in 2017, built and led the National Security Agency mission to identify nation-states breaking into ICS, and performed assessments on hundreds of assets around the world.
The Dragos Global Services Team serves as boots-on-the-ground in solving industrial control system security challenges. We then bring that expertise back and integrate it into our software technology: The Dragos Platform. Dragos is looking to strengthen our team in Europe with the help of a Principal Industrial Incident Responder. We are seeking responders with hands-on knowledge of network analysis and incident response to defend our customers’ industrial environments. Ideal candidates will have a working knowledge of incident response, intrusion analysis, hunting, and a variety of industrial software and hardware within electric, oil and gas, or advanced manufacturing verticals.
