Key responsibilities: 

Research: Researching new methods to find malicious behaviour in customer environments, simulating them and translating the outcome into actionable detection. 

Best practice frameworks: Creating and continuously improving detection use cases, rules, and analytics. You also map these use cases to best-practice frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK. 

Use Case Management: Activating and fine-tuning these use cases for customers. Maintaining the entire use case library in a version control system (Git) and simulating heat maps for customers to analyse detection coverage and gaps. 

Incident Response and Detection: Testing detection capabilities by simulating attacks in a lab environment. Validating detection capabilities on live customer environments and collaborating with the Incident Response teams to identify next steps, investigation, and response playbooks.
